One Day Leader Contestants Reflect on South Africa
SABC Education has published a book ‘One Day Leader’ written by previous participants of the One Day Leader television show who share their views on critical elements of South African life, namely race and culture, citizenship, entrepreneurship, education, gender equality, healthcare, poverty and leadership.
Anyone who watched the television series One Day Leader knows that new leaders are born all over South Africa in communities with and without resources. These leaders are determined individuals, ready to defend their views in a debate, to take on new ideas and will go out of their way to serve their communities.
Danie Swart, Head of Education says “these young leaders have high standards and are raising the bar to achieve excellence in all that they do. In the book the participants share their opinions and react to each other’s viewpoints; the reader can make their own stand and debate with family and friends.”
One Day Leader is a television series in which young people showcase their leadership skills by tackling modern day South African social, economic and political issues in their quest for the coveted title of One Day Leader. Each series tells the story of six youngsters who evolve from ordinary young people into willing, influential, accountable, thoughtful, calculating and brave visionaries.
