For over 10 years we have been giving hope to the hopeless and restoring dignity to young people and children across South Africa through our none profit organization (Bunang Baswa)which is headed by the directors of Events Amani.
BRIEF BACKGROUND OF WHAT BUNANG BASWA IS DOING TO CHANGE THE COUNTRY
In the past children and young people across African villagers and townships survived decades of marginalization, disappointment and unprivileged life. Young energetic and motivated people saw a need for change in their communities and villagers. It was when Bunang Baswa was formed in 2005 by South African young people. These were young people who were already being involved with community projects in their respective townships and villages. Thus far the organization has managed to reach over 5000 children and young people across the country. With branches in Pakistan, Nigeria and also partners in Uganda, England and America. From humble beginning to where the movement is now, is really a giant step.
With 10 years of working with both rural and township youth, we have come to a conclusion that young people need to be inspired, be capacitated and informed to lead their society.
•Increase pass rate and encourage excellent results in all grades especially grade 11 and 12.
