AMANDLA uses the power of football combined with holistic education to empower young people and to change lives. As a catalyst, AMANDLA Safe-Hubs serve as safe, educational, youth friendly centres in communities characterised by poverty, unemployment and inequality.
The Safe-Hub provides an alternative to the toxic environment of despair and hopelessness that many young people grow up in. It’s a place of physical and emotional safety, in which young people’s rights are recognised, their responsibilities are encouraged, and their potential is realized.
Since the project begun youth participation in AMANDLA activities has increased by 92%. With the aim of continually improving its reach and impact, AMANDLA monitors and evaluates all activities on a regular and ongoing basis.
