Video: YOUTH DAY MESSAGE
Today we commemorate the Soweto uprising which took place on June 16 1976, where thousands of students were ambushed by the apartheid regime. Lesira-Teq pays tribute to the lives of these students and recognises the role they played in the liberation of South Africa from the apartheid regime. On this day, we remember the words of Desmond Tutu; "You cannot be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality - Ubuntu - you are known for your generosity. We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole word".
May we use this day to reflect and refine our Ubuntu practices so that we may move forward better than we were yesterday.
We wish you a happy Youth Day
