Renata attends Adventure Into Citizenship tour.

In the June school holiday I had the chance to attend the Adventure Into Citizenship tour hosted by the Cape Town Rotary club. We were invited as members Rotary Interact club, an international club focusing on community welfare projects. The aim of the tour was to show us how Government functions. In addition we were taken to see examples of community projects in Cape Town and finally we also had time for other fun visits. Together with 44 other students across the Western Cape we had an exciting and jam packed program over the week of the 29th of June to the 5th of July. We started off with Barne Dancing which was a great way to meet my fellow interacters. From there on we had a series of amazing events such as visiting the High Court, the Parliament, MTN Science center, the Coca-cola factory and the Chris Barnard museum. We also had a few motivational speakers including Mr. Braam Malherbe- an extreme conservationist and one of the first men to run the entire wall of china to collect money for charity. There was also an opportunity for a few students who appeared on the Hectic9-nine show on SABC 2 and a photo shoot by a highly qualified photographer. We got the chance to participate in an environmental project where we learned about the water reservoirs of Cape-Town. We were taken to Khayalicha to see firsthand how a community garden operates. We helped to pull out some weeds and to fertilize the garden with their "home-made" compost. We ended off the tour on the last night with ten-pin-bowling and were taught to play the African drums. I am very grateful to the Rotary Club of Mossel Bay for this opportunity.
