Pioneers endurance


AfriForum Youth hosts three leadership and history hikes every year. The purpose of these hikes is to expose members and non-members to our history through experiential training. It offers adventurous people an opportunity to get involved in AfriForum Youth and to understand why it is so important to make a difference.
