The worldwide network of social entrepreneur Ashoka has identified being a changemaker as the most important skill for youth to be prepared for the future.
Although there is a lot to do for changemakers in challenging environments like our township, there is
little encouragement from the community, and institutions are often not very supportive of local initiatives.
On the other hand, the many challenges offer great opportunities to develop a changemaker mindset and
persistent leaders have the benefit of little competition. Nemato Change a Life is for youth, by youth.
Running the programme, making the decisions, addressing challenges, leading, organising, teaching, coaching.
It's all in the hands of the members. It empowers, strengthens self esteem, and nurtures change making
The township is a small world, opening up a bigger, more exciting world is crucial to grow an mindset of
change making. We use a wide variety of Youtube videos and we travel as much and as far as we can. We are
proud that we even have been able to offer members opportunities to travel overseas.
