Mamelani at a Glance

We work with young people and women from marginalised communities in the Western Cape, enabling them to improve their lives through active change. Our programmes build on the existing knowledge and strengths of participants ensuring that people feel valued, respected and listened to. Together, we are transforming communities.

Mamelani focuses on two vital areas:


Community Health

Sharing essential health information with people to take active steps, which improve their health and the health of those around them. More


Youth Development

Supporting young people in successfully transitioning out of state care at 18 years of age. More
