I will be running the 2019 Two Oceans half marathon to raise funds for Mamelani Projects - an established, registered NPO with 2 flagship programmes - a Youth Development Programme and a Community Health Programme.
Mamelani's Youth Development Programme supports young people who have grown up in state care (Child and Youth Care Centres and former Children's homes) and who, on turning 18, are forced to move on from the system. This transition is extremely difficult to navigate without adequate support. Mamelani's Programme ensures that these young people do not fall through the cracks at this critical time and ensures that they are emotionally and practically prepared for the next chapter of their lives. The support Mamelani provides focuses on resilience-building activities, support for further education, and the opportunity to start a paid internship which initiates them into the world of remunerative work.
Please help me reach my goal of raising R2000 to create these kinds of opportunities for the young people that Mamelani works with.

Mamelani works with people to increase their sense of agency and ability to improve their own lives. We work with young people coming out of state care through our Youth Development Programme and with women through our Health Education Programme.
