In celebration of former President Nelson Mandela’s Centenary, the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund (the Fund) in collaboration with the Department of Tourism, the City of Ekurhuleni, the Human Rights Commission, Parliament and the Market photo workshop will host the 2018 Youth Summit in Cape Town � Western Cape.
