Ikamva Youth's mission is to enable disadvantaged youth to pull themselves and each other out of poverty and into tertiary education or employment.
It provides a safe space for learners to be after class ends, where they receive help with their homework and a host of other services and support to ensure they succeed. Since its humble beginning in 2003 , Ikamva Youth has grown from one branch to more than fifteen and support over 5,000 learners per year through our various programmes.
Volunteers are a treasured resorce and their contributions have made Ikamva Youth a successful organisation.
