Inkwenkwezi Youth Development Sporting Foundation is a rural youth-led non-governmental non-profit company. We rely on the donations from individuals and organisations, to support our programmes. Donations are welcomed, please choose a campaign if you want to support us.
Higher Education Bursaries
Inkwenkwezi youth have a well-established bursary management system. With 7 youths from rural backgrounds currently supported by CATHSSETA bursaries. Inkwenkwezi manages the bursary students by monitoring and supporting the students’ progress through university. Recipients are provided with academic targets to achieve each year. To support their success Inkwenkwezi allocates a bursary officer to each case. The officer meets with the student every month to check his progress and assess the challenges they face, and where necessary intervene to put support into place.
Life Skills Through Sport
To equip young individuals with life skills Inkwenkwezi leverages the power of sport. We empower adolescents between the ages of 10 -19 to gain life skills with our in-school and out-of-school sports programme. This is an established programme, developed to address criminal behaviour in rural communities. Game changer champions, adolescents from within the communities are recruited every year. They are trained with the skills and knowledge to implement the program. These representatives are mentored and coached by the project coordinator.
