"Freedom and equality are foundational values that we draw upon when envisioning a better society. Equality of opportunity is a social ideal that combines concern with freedom and equality, and this social ideal provides a vision of how we ought to live together."


In this issue we want to share more opportunities in the world for the youth in South Africa & Africa included. Considering the increasing rate of unemployment in our country we believe its time we started looking for opportunities outside our country.
