Our goal is to create program initiatives that support “at-risk” children, youth, and their families by creating positive structures in their lives that will ultimately help promote civic responsibility in the future. We offer guidance and mentor the development of each participant’s mental, physical, emotional, and social well-being. With encouraging lessons of personal accountability, decency, and self-esteem, our organization believes that these are essential qualities for individuals to develop in order to live productive, self-sufficient, happy, and fulfilling lives. Our program provides positive structures and are designed to have performance indicators and measurable outcomes; with leadership development services in all categories.
Our program gives underprivileged youths, young adults, and families in our community a safe haven to pursue and improve upon their educational and professional pursuits while also learning positive lessons in life. This will offer the community a long lasting service by teaching individuals valuable lessons that encourage them to be respected pillars in society. We will help to prepare our program participants to be active, productive, confident, and successful members of society.
Our program will help develop life management, social skills, and literacy for low-income individuals that are underserved, handicapped, underprivileged, disenfranchised and disadvantaged. We also address juvenile /crime prevention and teen pregnancy prevention. We will offer services that empower each individual with the knowledge and resources to achieve greater self-identity, academic excellence, community involvement and balanced living.
What we Do
Youth Engagement: We involve young people in the design and delivery of youth activities to enable them to become active citizens while creating positive changes during implementation. We also provide support to organisations willing to involve young people in their decision-making process. We are sensitive to the changing needs and that is why we provide unique insights to empower young people with an opportunity to amplify their voices and get involved in fundraising, policy work and programme design.
Entrepreneurship: With self-employment initiative, young people will be able to lead small and medium scale enterprises. We collaborate across the private, public and civil society to equip young people for demand-driven and high-quality projects to foster recognisable developments in their local community. With this, young people can develop a business plan and create their businesses.
Education and Employment: The call for empowered young people has been driven by their resilience in playing an active role, navigating their paths and not minding the increasingly challenging world we live in. At Wamufat International Youth Community Development Foundation, we are passionate about reducing the challenges they face as we partner with charity organisations, government, universities, social enterprises and other businesses. We aim to tackle inequalities in education up to employment level by providing intensive business support, access to financial aid, technical or vocational training and initiatives, especially for disadvantaged young people.
Skill Development: From outdoor learning to money management, we deliver skill development programs to meet the changing needs of young people. We work with other organisations to build high-profile partnerships to deliver accessible funded opportunities to empower young people and engage them in training or volunteering.
Social Innovation: We support social innovation by creating new enterprises, ideas and solution to address issues in the community. We have a well-developed curriculum to accelerate the growth of social ventures. In partnership with the government and other organisations, we design and manage impact investment funds.
