Washington, 31 March – A South African high school student says that participating in Model UN activities has helped him to better understand the work of the United Nations.
Victor Asiwe from Potchefstroom was one of eleven South African students who participated in the Model UN Conference held in Washington D.C. in the United States in March this year.
Model UN gets students involved in tackling global issues and challenges by having them simulate the work of government delegates in conferences and debates.
