About Us

We are based in Mitchell’s Plain, an area that’s part of the Cape Flats in Cape Town South Africa. Our communities are filled with talented and good people but we are also fighting the constant scourge of high crime, poverty, unemployment, substance abuse, and violence. This leaves many people destitute, hopeless, and vulnerable.

We are tired of the generational trauma and suffering, therefore we are doing something to empower the current and next generation. Although we partner and collaborate with various organizations and institutions we always require resources and funds to implement our programmes.

Our mission is to prepare youth and disadvantaged adults for the workforce along with enhancing their knowledge and skills.

Our workshops and training programmes are mainly based on the needs of the communities.

Through our core Life Skills module, we explore various themes that can be applied in your daily life that contribute to better self-confidence, setting and achieving goals, and skills that generally help to navigate through life towards responsible citizenship.

We use different Art forms that stem from natural talent and that can be learned. It’s a way to express oneself as well as for development and sustainability.

We also implement a variety of sporting codes such as Table tennis, Soccer, and Fitness and wellness sessions that are important for Mental and Physical well-being.

With our Events, we aim to create platforms for talent, expression, and networking.

Our Impact:

When we started we, the founders used our own money and minimal resources to get going. As the needs of our communities grew and became more demanding, we would apply then get help from government funding and donations and were able to do more. With this being limited we are currently struggling to cover our important costs such as resources, refreshments/ meals, admin, and operational expenses.

Since 2017 - 2022 more than 2500 people benefited from our programmes, events, hygiene and food relief initiatives.

In 2023 - about 913 people including women and children benefited from our organization.


Due to this positive impact we make in the communities we also received acknowledgement through awards such as the Best Arts & Culture Award in 2018 from the Surve Philanthropies Imagine Awards as well as the Community Development Award in 2021 from the City of Cape Town. In addition, we were selected as A Mandela Hero on the SABC 3 Expesso Morning TV show.
