Activity description: IkamvaYouth is a by-youth, for-youth non-profit organisation based in Khayelitsha, a township in the Western Cape of South Africa. The organisation aims to broaden the post-school opportunities of Khayelitsha's youth, to fight unemployment and poverty. It does this through three core programmes: supplementary tutoring, career guidance and life skills, and e-literacy development. Information and communications technology (ICT) is integral to the way the organisation operates, as well as the way it delivers its free services to its constituents. It is also the South African HUB of the Ford Programme's Global Education Initiative.
