About

The Young Africa FOUNDATION is based in Pretoria, the capital of South Africa, but it works with partners globally towards achieving its vision.

It is a registered, non-profit entity, Registration Number: 2018/593030/08, Tax Reference Number: 9218692235, with the objective of supporting Community Youth Development. The purpose of the Young Africa FOUNDATION is to raise grant funding for its own programmes, as well as for other related non-profit organisations, who may not have the capacity to apply for grants themselves and to partner with others to achieve its vision of an Africa that is a safe, caring and prosperous haven for all its people and welcomes visitors and trade partners from across the globe.

The Young Africa FOUNDATION forms part of the greater Young Africa VISION – an innovative system of instruments developed by Reinhild Niebuhr, experienced youth development specialist and social entrepreneur, over the past 16 years, since she wrote the book “Young Africa – Policy Blueprint For A Continent Of Youth”.

The VISION of Young Africa is summarized in the “Young Africa VISION CHARTER”, as contained within the Young Africa book:
