LeadSA Twitter take over - Activate Change Drivers

Communications manager for Activate Change Driver, Nelisa Ngqulana, says they will be addressing Human Rights issues such as sanitary pads, xenophobia, education and youth unemployment as part of their LeadSA Twitter take over.

LeadSA has invited NGO’s who work predominantly in the Human Rights sector to make use of its Twitter platform to highlight the work they do in making South a better place.

This is part of a broader campaign “Living the Constitution” making the constitution accessible to the South African public.

We are a network of 2 000 young South Africans from all corners of the country. What brings us together is the commitment to contribute positively toward a better South Africa.

Nelisa Ngqulana, Communications manager for Activate Change Driver

We are going to use the Twitter take over as an opportunity to introduce LeadSA followers to what we are passionate about and what are young people doing in their communities.
