Creating Leaders To Build Resilient Democracies
Democracy Works Academy is a youth leadership, civic education and dialogue programme established to inspire, empower and connect young people in Southern Africa. The DWA ran its first inception phase in South Africa from 2018 to 2022 as a partnership initiative with In Transformation Initiative (ITI) and The University of Pretoria.
The “Hero Stories” booklet is a showcase of how six Democracy Works Alumni overcame
the obstacles they faced and took the lead in positioning themselves and empowering
others to be the change-makers our country so desperately needs.
