Youth Village in Soweto

In August 2005, IAHV SA and its partner organization The Art of Living established a partnership with Forte High School in Dobsonville Soweto in Johannesburg. The partnership started with a medical camp and has progressed rapidly.

There are an alarmingly large number of children at the school, who are from child-headed families or who are heading their families and siblings.

The Youth Village project’s focus is to assist and empower these youth in a sustainable way, by providing the tools and practical experience to manage their lives successfully, both at home and in school The Youth Village project, headed by Art of Living teacher, Aneshree Naidoo, does the above in the following ways:

• Organic Food Garden
• Food distribution
• Feeding Scheme
• Organic Food Garden

Life empowerment programmes such as: Youth camps and Yes Plus Courses

Our focus has been on nurturing our relationships with our NGO partners. We have had great support from these NGO’s in terms of bringing our youth empowerment and BWS programmes to the youth and community in Soweto. We have adopted the Bokamoso feeding scheme completely and Bokamoso in turn have been assisting other smaller NGO’s in the community as well as the indigent within the community.
