Bjatladi Youth Development
Bjatladi Youth Development is a cutting-edge organisation that establishes locally-led Youth Awakening Centres and heightens environmental and heritage consciousness in the Bjatladi/Magoebaskloof region of Limpopo Province, South Africa. BYD focuses its energies on planting, growing and sustaining our village-based youth centres which intervene uniquely in their own communities through artistic, sport, educational and cultural programmes. Context Our Youth Awakening Centres are oases of energy, passion and creative expression in rural Limpopo communities where limited resources as well as complex historical and cultural dynamics present enormous challenges to young people and their families. These communities possess immense latent potential which remains largely unrealized as they wrestle with economic poverty, cultural upheaval, and the complexities of living a rural life in a country that is increasingly oriented toward modern progress, technology, and Westernized systems. Bjatladi Youth Development's main office and shop is located in Haenertsburg, a small town in Magoebaskloof between Polokwane and Tzaneen. The youth centres and schools we support and empower are in surrounding Ga-Mamabolo villages Masealama, Spitzkop, and Segwashi, as well as in the Magoebaskloof and George’s Valley areas.
