Afrika Tikkun Debate Project 2020

Last year the SASDB partnered with the Afrika Tikkun Organisation to facilitate a debate development project for their learners. Afrika Tikkun aims to develop and uplift young people in under-privileged communities in South Africa.

The debate project was attended by a team of 5 learners from 5 Afrika Tikkun Centres: Orange Farm, Alexandra, Braamfontein, Diepsloot and Mfuleni. The learners were trained by volunteers from the SASDB ahead of the competition. The SASDB also facilitated the semi-finals and finals of the competition.

This was a phenomenal opportunity for all involved. The learners left us in awe with the level of skill and dedication they displayed throughout the tournament. In the space of a few weeks, the teams were able to argue on complex motions and present their speeches in a world class manner. The overall winners of the tournament was Orange Farm.
