The Umzi Wethu Training Academy for displaced youth in
South Africa is a highly innovative, community-based initiative,
harnessing the healing power of nature to fulfill the potential of
orphans and vulnerable youth (OVY) displaced by HIV/Aids or other
causes. It engages the booming eco-tourism sector in South Africa to
generate jobs for trained and mentored OVY who would be otherwise
This is a not for profit project harnessing the healing power of nature
and inspiring an environmental consciousness. Each young person will
experience careful mentoring and accredited training in a safe
environment with concentrated and extended time in nature. Through Umzi
Wethu, each participant will graduate into work perhaps as a game
ranger, chef or lodge hostess through advance job placement into the
ecotourism, conservation and hospitality industries to secure a future
for these young people.
