The two-week programme enabled youth from Tafelsig, Mitchells Plain, to share their stories and experiences of violence and to reflect on how their environment has impacted on their lives and safety.

In September 2015, the “Urban Violence, Safety and Governance” CityLab at the African Centre for Cities (ACC) conducted a two-week media training programme with ten out-of-school and unemployed young people from Tafelsig in Mitchell’s Plain.
