Chaeli Mycroft, the winner of the International Children’s Peace Prize 2011, founded the Chaeli Campaign with her sister and three friends. Within the Pay it Forward ambassadors program the Chaeli Campaign trains children between the ages of nine and fourteen on their communication skills, leadership qualities and network capacities. These skills can help the children to make positive changes in their own community.
THIS IS US!!!!
Fasten your seat-belts because its going to be a long ride Pondering service of thee untitled answers We are bilingual Every shot that rang was a sign of endurement Even though we ought to be ashamed , shame doesn't come round here You can hear echos from the streets the streets remain hollow because of absent fathers , gender discrimination and race differences
Diversity is our pride We are shades of different colors But we are one human race We might be running against each other sometimes but we will finish it together trust me Round here We ARE EMPERORS Round here WE ARE EMPRESSES From our hair to our feet We are uniquely designed I feel connected to each lock they remind me of a time before me when black wasn't just HIP HOP Trace the dreadlocks back to the Mau-Mau Far short of Africa and the Nazareth's Children sleep while Rasta man walk From our eyes to our toes We speak no lies Tracing the texture of my skin back to the Mpondo tribe of great warriors and beautiful women
"It takes a women to raise a child " And that is what raised us From the 4 corners our RDP homes to the grounds of our school W learnt the essence of family IT doesn't matter which race
Round Here No one can save but yourself Round here what doesn't kill you YOU SCARES THE LIVING DEMONS OUT OF YOU But we survive
You can call us heroes or sheroes It doesn't matter I AM AN AFRICAN You can hear it From the way i talk The way i drag on words and the way i click my tongue From the way i dress and walk i am a Capetonian From the way i carry myself and my academics I am from the Groenvlei family ONCE A GROENVLEI LEARNER ALWAYS A GROENVLEI LEARNER
