Inspiring developing minds in townships

Developing young minds
Reading competition inspires the youth

18 Gangster Museum has seen the power of education in developing young minds and how it propels them to a bright future. We stand by the famous words that say “Education is the key to success”.

If we want to create a gang free society, a safe society, we must start developing the young with good quality education. Start skilling them at a tender age that
lowers the chances of having to see them turning to gangs.

18 Gangster Museum is hosting a book reading competition for primary schools in the township of Khayelitsha. This is to create a generation of well-informed young people from the townships.

We aim to create a generation of readers and thinkers not gangsters. We believe that young people should spend their time coming up with ideas that can
change the world not killing each other by joining gangs.

We have a book voucher of R10 000 to give away to the winning school. As well as a six month free computer course from Mbele Social Concepts.

This will add value in skilling them and adding value towards their future. 18Gangstermuseum values the importance of education and early childhood development and this is a step that we are taking toward creating a gang free society but more
importantly creating a generation of new Einstein’s, Mandela’s, Thabo Mbeki’s and your
Mark Shuttleworths.

The competition guidelines are as follows:
• Two schools will participate, each will be represented by five pupils ages ranging from 7-12
• We have two categories ages 7-9 (first category) and ages 10-12 (second category) it’s advised that each school be represented in each category.
• Each school will select its own representatives, following its own structure.
• The competition date is the 31st of October where the pupils will read and spell in front of a panel of judges who will there after choose a winner.
