Imbewu Community Volunteers

IMBEWU is a grassroots development non-governmental organisation (NGO) founded in 2001.

Its aim is to initiate or coordinate sustainable participative projects by working with local communities in the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Municipality to create conditions which enable youth from disadvantaged communities to envisage a future of equal opportunities and success.

The activities of IMBEWU are currently benefiting more than 1 600 young South Africans between six and 20 years old.

IMBEWU aims at strengthening the psychosocial development of South African children and youth through participative education, sports and social/health awareness projects.

This mission is achieved through the promotion of intercultural exchanges and the development of local projects which broaden opportunities for the youth of South Africa and provide tools for responsible citizenship.

IMBEWU’s mission is reached thanks to after-school sports activities used as tools for education and development, and lead by three theme approaches:

  • Social and health prevention and sensitisation
  • Psychosocial development and reduction of at-risk behavior
  • Cultural exchanges

Among the most important program’s outcomes is the daily provision of 2 200 meals, more than 250 learners directly sponsored, delivery of after-school activities for about 200 pupils each day, holiday camps and the hosting of more than 200 international volunteers since 2001.

IMBEWU, a South African/Swiss aid organisation went into partnership with the Roger Federer Foundation in 2004.
