IkamvaYouth is a South African NGO focusing on educational enrichment of secondary school learners from disadvantaged schools. In the past I have assisted with program management, financial management and human resource management. I also initiated the following within the organization: the annual holiday program, strategic planning weekend and the formation of the second branch in Nyanga. More recently, I am providing advisory support to the organization and working with the Executive Director to implement comprehensive monitoring and evaluation processes. The NGO is becoming quite prominent in South Africa. In her 2011 budget speech Angie Motshekga (Minister of Basic Education in South Africa) noted our efforts commenting that: the non-governmental organisations (NGOs) sector has continued to play a very important role in education. We were fascinated by initiatives of young people supporting other young people, like Ikamva.
