Shift and Mental Health Awareness

Young Community Shapers -25 July 2011

This coming Monday we will be looking at young people who have taken the responsibility of looking after some of the issues that are affecting their communities. Some of the projects that they have started include feeding schemes for children, afternoon classes for learners, computer literacy courses and HIV - AIDS support groups. All these projects have one thing in common - they are confronting and trying to solve problems related to poverty and inequality. On the show that day we will be looking at this theme and try to come up with other solutions on how young people can survivethe challenges related to poverty.

Tuesday, 26 July 2011: Rural Food vs. Kassie Food vs. Urban Food.

In this episode we open the debate around the preference to food given the influence of urbanization. The debate is; What food is better Kasie Food or Rural Food or Urban Food?

We ask our guests and presenters to prepare and bring their preferred dish and debate why they chose the dish they did. It’s a lighter look at food. We also showcase the International Hotel School and their recent Bootcamp they had where the winner received a R 160 000 bursary. This is an annual competition and thus we can inform viewers to participate in the next Bootcamp.
