A Snapshot of Inkwenkwezi Youth Development Sporting Foundation

Inkwenkwezi Youth Development is a  non-profit organisation that uses the power of sport to educate, inspire, and mobilize at-risk youth in Ngqushwa local municipality, in the Eastern Cape. We use our sports program as a vehicle to teach life skills. Our foundation then assists young people in forging their future by helping them access training and employment opportunities. We provide promising students with bursary assistance and ongoing support.

Inkwenekwezi Youth Development Sporting Founding offers sporting programs to better the lives of the underprivileged.  Every little contribution makes a difference to the lives of our youth. Partner with us to help our future leaders and society by getting involved.
