Inkwenkwezi Youth Development is a B-BBEE level1 rural youth-led nongovernmental, not-for-profit company that uses the power of sport to educate, inspire and mobilize at-risk youth in Ngqushwa local municipality, Peddie – Eastern Cape. The organization was formed by unemployed graduates in 2015 with the strategic intent to develop, empower and mainstream young people so that a dream of a crime free society, wherein the youth is safe, employable, academically achieving, healthy and socially connected is realized. We use our sport programme as a vehicle to teach life skills. To promote healthy living among youth, and academic excellence. Our Foundation then assists young people in forging their future by helping them access nutritional support, training and employment opportunities. We provide promising students with bursary assistance and ongoing support. To combat crime through integrated, holistic youth development through sport. Rationale On 4 July 2020, the world will be celebrating International Cooperatives Day, whose theme was chosen to support Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13 on Climate Action. This event will focus on the contribution of cooperatives to combating climate change, one of the most severe challenges facing our planet during the 21st century.
