Reviews From DofE Participants

who chose About Africa for their Skills Section

"I loved learning about the History of Africa and it's independence from colonising Empires. I also liked learning about Nelson Mandela and anti-apartheid, .Studying Africa's past is important to me because it gives hope for the it's future and the prosperity of the whole world"

C.A. Bronze DofE Award Participant

"I really enjoyed the whole course. The culture, history and heritage were of particular interest. The continent is so vibrant and rich in many areas. The different clothing worn in some parts of Africa is also an area I found really interesting. I would love to visit so many of the countries I learnt about. It was also great to find out more about things I had heard of in history briefly and when they occurred and the impact events had on shaping life particularly apartheid and slavery. It wasn't that long ago that apartheid was first legislated for in 1948.
