We are a youth-led and youth-focused development organization that is encouraged by the words of the global icon, Dr Nelson Mandela, to dedicate itself to the empowerment of those still affected by inequality, injustice and poverty.

Join us in building a new future that empowers previously disadvantaged groups and makes social issues a thing of the past. Sisonke sibambisene singalakha ikusasa eliqhakazile.

Building a better future with the youth

Do you know that South Africa is young and female. With almost 60 million people in the country, more than 51 percent of them are women. Representation is very important to the youth. We make up the majority of the population in Africa, and with the many global issues that we face our voice is important in building a better future; after all it is our future we are planning. Our organization therefore seeks to represent the youth and work towards a society that is youth-centered and focused.

Our organization has programmes that respond to the unique situation in South Africa, which prioritizes the youth and women, which takes on a collaborative approach. Our vision is in creating sustainable solutions for communities, creating and grooming future leaders.

Peruse our programmes page to learn more about what we do and how we do it, then get involved. We need more young people taking on the mission of improving our society.
