This, the first event hosted by Nigel Savel, 9Miles Project founder who collaborated with Ward 43 councillor and Sub-council 23 chairperson, Elton Jansen, was attended by more than 200 youth people. “Our goal is to build stable youth structures in the community where they can access information and be empowered and inspired so that they can activate their potential,” said Mr Savel.
