Nemato Change a Life: empowerment for youth from Nelson Mandela Township (Nemato)

Nemato Change a Life - youth empowerment

success in life - for youth, by youth

Nemato Change a Life empowers youth in Nelson Mandela Township. We want to change the mindset, improve the skills and knowledge, and guide all our members individually in education and career to become successful in life.

We focus in our holistic empowerment programme on:

  • be nice
  • be a hard worker
  • be a changemaker
  • be fit
  • be educated
  • be skilled
  • Nemato township sports clubs: rowing, gymnastics, handball and fencing

    Nemato Sports

    We offer four small Olympic sports that were not available in our township communities. Our athletes compete at least at provincial level, many at national level and we also have athletes competing at international top level. The four sports clubs are independent, but are affiliated to the Nemato Change a Life empowerment programme.

    Our sports are:

  • rowing
  • gymnastics: tumbling and trampoline
  • handball
  • fencing
  • Matinyana Bursary Fund: a bursary fund for disadvantaged students from Nemato

    Matinyana Bursary Fund

    The Matinyana Bursary Fund is based in the Netherlands and supports disadvantaged students from Nelson Mandela Township with financial support and guidance. Nemato Change a Life runs the South African office for the fund.
