Leadership Fables – Featuring Golden Rules from Leaders for the Youth

“And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.” Nelson Mandela

"Leadership Fables – Featuring Golden Rules from Leaders for the Youth” encourages its readers to explore their own perspectives on the principles of leadership and in doing so, enrich them with new horizons.

The driving purpose of the book, and its creators, is to highlight the premise that with a foundation of values, our young generation will lead with ethics which will allow for people’s empowerment, economic growth and sustainable development.

Themes on the meaning of leadership in the corporate and government world and the importance of ethics related to leadership practices were dialogued and debated at primary and high schools in the Free State, Limpopo and Gauteng provinces. These debates led to the creation of fables by learners that were then converted into visual concepts in the form of cartoons, paintings and evocative words. A Golden Rule contributed by 30 captains of industry from across South Africa enhances the message of each fable and the themes followed by the visual arts.

Thirty spectacular visual images are incorporated in the art book "Leadership Fables – Featuring Golden Rules from Leaders for the Youth”, a publication which aims to highlight that Leaders are respected for their values, Leaders are doers through the positive energy of people and that Leaders are achievers.

90 children between the ages of 13 and 19 years participated with their educators in the project. Forewords to the book are by Dr Stephen R. Covey and Professor Mthuli Ncube. Creative direction by Isa Schwartz Gesseau; Zapiro, Bongi Bengu and Shiu-Lyn White.

My Identity Document deepening my sense of Belonging

iVALUE Identity programme in support of “Schools Rights and Lights Campaign”, in partnership with La Voix de l’Enfant and Engie Foundation, is already enabling 2069 learners above 16 from 12 public high schools to get their Identity Document and become active citizens in Gauteng.

Currently, many school children above the age of 16 in South Africa still lack access to their vital life documents such as birth certificates, and Identity Document. As a result, our children lose their sense of identity and face tremendous difficulties when wanting to exercise their rights such as enrolment in schools, writing Matric examinations, right to vote and enjoy social benefits such as being able to purchase a cell phone, search and apply for employment and lead their lives. At Olievenhoutbosch Secondary School, the principal is grateful as she was used to have a tremendous drop out of learners just because they did not have access to this vital right to an Identity Document and some felt at risk as foreigners.
