Nam youth invited to boot camp in SA

Two Namibian youths, Ndahambelela Haifene and Christ Shameulu, have been invited as delegates to the Youth Alliance for Leadership and Development in Africa (Yalda) international boot camp.

The event, to be held under the theme: ‘Breaking Information Barriers on Intra-Africa Trade: Youth Inclusiveness in Implementing AfCFTA’, will take place at the Future Africa Centre in Pretoria from 21-25 February.

The boot camp will bring together over 50 delegates from across Africa and offers training programmes for young entrepreneurs in trade or those wishing to be involved in trade.

Haifene, a self-published author, international speaker, youth leader and legal practitioner, says she is thrilled to be invited to contribute to a vital discussion on the impact of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) on legal services and human rights.

“As a young legal professional and empowerment advocate in Africa, I am deeply honoured to be recognised for my contributions to our continent’s progress,” says Haifene.

Shameulu, a trailblazer in sustainable fashion and founder of Swakopmund Fashion Week, brings a wealth of experience and entrepreneurial spirit to the event.

She says she sees the opportunity as a platform to amplify the voices of African youth, particularly women and those from marginalised communities.

“Yalda’s vision of empowering young African leaders resonates deeply with my own mission to foster talent and drive economic transformation in Africa,” says Shameulu.
