Welcome, Empowervate!


Welcome to our new Receiver Organisation, Empowervate. 

Empowervate is a youth development NPO that was registered in 2013. The flagship program it runs, The Youth Citizens Action Programme, was born out of Afrika Tikkun, a well-established NGO, in 2009, initially as a youth dialogue. When the national youth program, which works through the Department of Basic Education, grew too large to be housed under a community development organisation, Empowervate was born.

Powered by Empowervate, The Youth Citizens Action Programme (Y-CAP) is a competition-based program that encourages learners from primary and secondary schools to identify challenges and create actions to solve or lessen the problems within their schools or communities.
