Mrs Graça Machel delivered a powerful message during her keynote address for UWC Africa Week on Saturday the 16th of June 2018.

In line with this year’s Africa Week theme, Africa Unbound, Mrs Machel spoke about reclaiming our African identity, defining what it means to be African. “In our African culture we always speak as a collective, we support each other, we care for each other,” she said. She continued to encourage the youth to identify their historical mission and thrive to make Africa and the world a better place. “Young people, you have the power to bring about change,” she emphasized.

At the end of her speech, Waterford students got an opportunity to ask questions and engage on the topic. Wabantu Hlophe (Eswatini, WK 08-13) was the MC during the session. Also present during the keynote address were Waterford parents, members of the Governing Council, Parents-Staff Association, alumni, local business and the media.
