Afrika Tikkun continues to make remarkable strides in empowering young individuals, and this year, we are thrilled to highlight the exceptional achievements of eight outstanding young people who have been selected to represent us at the prestigious Festival 24 in France. This festival, held from July 19 to July 28, 2024, in Lyon and Paris, is a global celebration of sports, culture, and unity, inspired by the upcoming Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

A Journey of Empowerment and Excellence
Our eight young ambassadors have demonstrated exceptional talent, dedication, and a commitment to excellence in their respective fields. They will not only participate in Festival 24 but will also attend the grand opening ceremony of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness the magic of the Olympics up close and to be part of a global celebration that transcends borders and brings people together through the power of sports.

Festival 24: A Celebration of Diversity and Unity
Festival 24 is organized by Sport dans la Ville, leveraging their extensive experience in hosting international events such as the Men’s EURO 2016 and the Women’s World Cup in 2019. The festival will gather over 500 participants from 37 countries, offering them a platform to engage in various sports, cultural exchange programs, and workshops that promote social inclusion, gender equality, and the Olympic values.

Key Highlights of Festival 24
1. Cultural Performances: Our young ambassadors will participate in vibrant cultural performances, showcasing the rich and diverse heritage of South Africa. These performances are a testament to the power of culture in fostering understanding and unity among people from different backgrounds.
