The Secretariat of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) is pleased to announce the launch of the 2023 SADC Tertiary Institution Essay competition to all active tertiary institution-going learners.
The topic of this year’s competition is “Describe the roles that the founding fathers might have played in developing the vision for the regional integration” The Council Ministers, during its meeting in August 2020, directed the SADC Secretariat to operationalise the initiative to recognise and honour the Founders of SADC.
The initiative, as approved by the SADC Council, is aimed at providing due recognition to the Founders of SADC for their contribution to the establishment of SADC and subsequent pursuance of a regional integration agenda. To this end, the SADC Secretariat is calling for submissions of essay entries from active tertiary institution going learners. The wordings of the think piece and content should aim at promoting the role played by the Founders of SADC taking into account the prevailing peace and security which contributes to the SADC’s Objectives and Common Agenda.
