“Our Earth, Our Land, Our Values” is the culmination of a two-year learning process, showcasing the knowledge and skills acquired by Valued Citizens learners and educators. The children who participated in the project ranged in age from 10 to 15 years.

The art book is earmarked for South African primary school children to trigger their creativity and to stimulate them to think about constitutional values and citizenship principles.

The compilation of poems, African proverbs and visual art is in alphabetic sequence, every value and principle translated into the eleven South African official languages as well as French.  It is a rich and authentic celebration of African Renaissance.

The Valued Citizens Initiative firmly believes that a life well lived is a life which has goals and integrity; a life which is chosen and directed by the one who lives it, even when caught in the web of society and history.  We are the creators of our path.
