Unveiling Africa presents the third edition of Days of Change with the theme “The life I have lived; the future I want”. This year’s project gives students the opportunity to tell their life story through a comprehensive autobiography.
This project allows students to:
- Take a trip down memory lane with their parents while working together, sharing laughs, and stories and enjoying one on one time before the summer break is over.
- Be introspective. It gives students the opportunity to reflect on the positive occurrences in their lives, pull out old medals, trophies and awards, and relive these special events while revelling in their accomplishments.
- Recognize and appreciate their differences. The aim is to gain a better understanding and celebrate these personal and cultural differences which makes each student unique.
The purpose of the autobiography is for the students to tell who they are; they are encouraged to have fun with it and let their personalities shine through, as well as include pictures of family members, awards or special mementos.
Some of the topics the students are prompted to think about include:
- Where their names came from/What their names mean
- Places they have lived
- Interesting facts about their families or backgrounds
- Memorable events in their lives
- Hopes for the future
To our teens we say, have fun rediscovering what makes you special! We look forward to your participation in this educating and fun project. Take a look at our previous years Days of Change campaigns here Days of Change 2014, Days of Change 2015.
