Vision 2030

South Africa’s National Development Plan holds within it a vision and mission, known as Vision 2030. By this time, it’s hoped that active citizenship, leadership and a capable state are South Africa’s defining characteristics. The AEC aims to help create such a state through the work it does. Here is what Vision 2030 says: NDP Vision Statement

We, the people of South Africa, have journeyed far since the long lines of our first democratic election on 27 April 1994, when we elected a government for us all.

Now in 2030 we live in a countrywhich we have remade. Therefore, in 2030, we experience daily how: We participate fully in efforts to liberate ourselves from conditions that hinder the flowering of our talents.

We all see to it and assist so that all life’s enablers are available in a humane way.

We all have actively set out to change our lives in ways which also benefit the broader.

We all assist the institutions we have creatively redesigned to meet our varied needs; we reach out across communities to strengthen our resolve to live with honesty, to be set against corruption and dehumanising actions.

We know that those to whom we have given the privilege to govern our land, do so on our behalf and for the benefit of all the people.

We say to one another: I cannot be without you, without you this South African community is an incomplete community, without one single person, without one single group, without the region or the continent, we are not the best that we can be.

We acknowledge that each and every one of us is intimately and inextricably of this earth with its beauty and life-giving sources; that our lives on earth are both enriched and complicated by what we have contributed to its condition.

South Africa belongs to all its peoples.

Now, in 2030, our story keeps growing as if spring is always with us.

Once, we uttered the dream of a rainbow. Now we see it, living it. It does not curve over the sky.

It is refracted in each one of us at home, in the community, in the city, and across the land, in an abundance of colour.

When we see it in the faces of our children, we know: there will always be, for us, a worthy future.

Alumnus of the Month

Dalisu Jwara

Dalisu Jwara

Dalisu matriculated in 2010 from Highlands North Boys and proceeded to the University of Cape Town (UCT) where he received a business science degree. He began an organization called Amadoda at UCT, which aims to provide excellent male role models to poor children and those living in townships. For his efforts, he was asked to be a Panel Advisory Member of the Queen of England’s Young Leader Awards. Dalisu experienced many challenges including the death of his parents when he was five years old. But a fire deep within Dalisu resulted in his soaring to greater heights, notably with the assistance of the AEC. Today, he works as a business analyst at The Weir Group in Scotland. He intends returning to South Africa with his added work and life skills.
