Young people are the agents for social change” 

Tshepo explaining how Equal Education organises through allowing school children to campaign for change.

Tshepo Mostepe is the General Secretary of Equal Education, a movement of learners, parents, teachers and community members working for quality and equality in South African education.

We first met him in October 2016 in Cape Town, South Africa.

Tshepo explained the issues within the South African education system. Like many other issues of inequality these are deeply rooted in the Apartheid era and include the total lack of regulation. He explained there was issues with classroom sizes, basic sanitation and a general lack of safe environments for children to learn.
