The resilience of one impacts the resilience of another

The Youth Resilience Initiative is an integrated systems-wide approach to supporting youth in their transitions from alternative care.The initiative works at three levels. 

The initiative works at three levels. Firstly, we collaborate with youth in their transitions from alternative care. Secondly, we provide training, consultation, and supportive environments to strengthen them in ways organizations build resilience with young people. And thirdly, we influence policy and legislation to ensure that transitional support and after-care services are strengthened in the child protection and youth sectors.

Community Development

Developing communities by developing people

Mamelani believes in developing communities by developing people. Our community development initiatives are aimed at growing a nation of grassroot leaders and building networks of support in communities.

We strengthen the leadership capacity of grassroot leaders and support them in developing interventions that can have a positive impact on those around them. 

The community building initiative creates opportunities for people who have come through our processes to remain connected to a network of support and the Mamelani community
