Youngsters need to have the difficult conversations around South Africa’s future to build on the achievements of their predecessors, says social entrepreneur Luvuyo Mandela.

Mandela emphasises the need for youth to make the most of the opportunities afforded them as a result of the new democracy. “There are constant reminders of our many responsibilities given the sacrifices made for us to live the freedom we enjoy today,” he says.
