Ikamva Ubomi is a community based outreach NPO established in December 2011 that aims to empower youth with employable skills, to teach them a sense of community development, crime prevention and most importantly giving our kids direction and opportunity.
Ikamva Ubomi identifies projects in the communities where these Learners use their newly acquired skills and apply it. They are taught to give back to the communities that they come from. These projects include pensioners, churches, mosques, schools, etc. that are in need of repairs and maintenance. We also use skilled parents from the communities to teach the kids these basic skills. Small businesses aid by assisting us with finance, tools and other resources. Thus far, they have established over 25 resource centre in various underpriviledge communties. Ikamva Ubomi emphasises the importance of education. When a community has knowledge and skills, they have the power to be the pillars within their communities. Access to adequate resources and information must be seen as a basic human right. Let us assist with their battle against unemployment,poverty, drug abuse and crime. We can only become what we are exposed to.
