ACTSA are recruiting a small team of volunteers to assist with logistical and event management support for our anniversary event, a live interview with Graça Machel. By volunteering for ACTSA, you will meet new people, including MPs, and Ambassadors who are attending the event. This is an excellent opportunity for anyone who wants to gain practical experience in events, fundraising and the charity sector.

To mark our 25th anniversary, we are planning a special event: An interview with Mozambican politician and humanitarian, Graça Machel, in front of a live audience. Graça Machel is also the widow of both former South African President Nelson Mandela and of Mozambican President Samora Machel. Ash Sarkar, British journalist, political activist and senior editor at Novara Media, will be the interviewer.

The interview will take the theme ‘25 years of…’, reviewing challenges the region has overcome over the last 25 years and highlight challenges that remain. Throughout the interview, we will also be exploring ways that further progress might be achieved in addressing inequality and delivering rights and sustainable development in the region. The 2-hour event will conclude with a question and answer session, when people in the audience will be able to ask Graça Machel questions.
