1st Tour Highlights
Some have commented that the first tour was the best tour because even the organizers ( former students) where for the first time reconciling with the past, thus the emotions where palpable.
2nd Tour Highlights
The second tour was more structured and even the pre-tour preparations were far more organized. This resulted in a larger group than the first, with an increased interest in the program.
3rd Tour highlights
This tour was the most structured of the tours, involving a senior government representative from South Africa and a strong showing from one of our partner organizations.
The program also involved a business dinner in the evening in Dar Es Salaam and also involved the first lecture undertaken in SOMAFCO. It also involved the renaming of the Primary School from Solomon Mahlangu Primary to Chief Albert Luthuli Primary.
4th Tour highlights
This tour involved significant partnerships with different stakeholders. The tour taking place in 2012 which marked 100 years since the establishment of the ANC, resulted in the tour tracing the exit routes that many ANC activists took to go into exile.
5th Tour Highlights
The 2013 tour capitalized on some lessons from the previous tours and also boasted better co-ordination with key stakeholders. Lessons and major improvements have influenced the planning and preparation for future tours.
