JUNE - JULY 2018

It’s June, we are halfway through the year and appropriately we celebrate Youth Day on 16 June with the entire month dedicated to Generation Next, the youth. Events in our history are the building blocks of our present and, when you think about it, our actions today will shape the future for our children. It is no surprise that the legacy of great figures in our South African history, Hector Pietersen, Nelson Mandela, Oliver Tambo and a host of others set so many aspects of what we enjoy today in motion when they represented the ambitions, mood and desire of our youth in generations past.

Africa has one of the youngest populations in the world with more than half of the continental citizens under the age of 35; and this is what Youth Month is all about, recognising our heroes from the past while nurturing our future leaders.

In this month’s newsletter you have a chance to win your share of 500 000 Voyager Miles.

Warm regards

 SAA Voyager Charities
Taungana Africa 

Taungana is a movement that believes in a generation of African women and girls that change their lives and their communities through entrepreneurial science/ STEM – science, technology, engineering, mathematics.

By exposing young rural high school girls to the practical intersection of design, STEM and entrepreneurship, we equip them to define and build solutions for their communities' challenges and also importantly, empower them to own and tell their own stories serving as role models to those around them.

Taungana yearly brings a group of up to 30 rural high school learners to the SAA Technical facility to get exposure to the aviation industry. All the learners are female and aged 13 – 17 years old. Over a 100 Ambassadors from across Southern Africa have passed through the nurturing hands of the SAA team, interacting with the very best of technical engineers, female captains and first officers, cabin crew and so many more. This milestone would not be possible without the amazing support of our valued Voyager members.

The partnership between SAA Voyager and Taungana augments the relationship, as SAA Voyager members can donate Miles towards this charity organisation. Over 1 000 000 Miles were raised since January 2018. We will therefore fly a significant number of Ambassadors to the annual flagship Taungana STEM Expo in Johannesburg this August. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your generous donations.
