They had been selected by the US Mission to South Africa for the programme, which took place last month.
The Pan-Africa Youth Leadership Programme allowed 110 young leaders between the ages of 15 and 18 from across Africa to participate in three weeks of leadership and project management skills training in three different American cities.
It was due to their initial project, Eco-Green, that they were selected to represent the country. The team initiated a clean-up campaign with the goal to start a recycling initiative at their school.
