Youth Day – South Africa

South African Youth Day, observed annually on June 16, commemorates the 1976 Soweto Uprising, a pivotal moment in the nation’s fight against apartheid. On this day, thousands of black students protested against the imposition of Afrikaans as the medium of instruction in schools.

This day serves as a reminder of the importance of education and the ongoing efforts to address youth-related challenges in South Africa.
