Supporting young people holistically in South Africa
A Safe-Hub® is a physically and emotionally safe space for young people. Here, they can access services, opportunities and support from strong role models through a sports-based programme with a special focus on health, education, and employability. Safe-Hub® infrastructure provides a campus for local NGOs, government and service providers, making each Safe-Hub® an innovative collaboration place with only one main focus: holistic support for young people, their families and the community. A Safe-Hub® includes an Artificial Turf Football Field connected to a Youth Café, Training Academy, Digital Lab, Transversal Office Spaces, Psychosocial Support Centre and Commercial Spaces for young entrepreneurs. Diverse and integrated income and funding streams ensure financial sustainability of Safe-Hub® operations.
AMANDLA is now expanding upon the Safe-Hub® model by adding elements of renewable energy, sustainable water harvesting and sustainable agriculture to the existing infrastructure. To achieve this, knodel foundation is supporting the campus in Gugulethu-Manenberg (near Cape Town) by developing off-grid solutions. The sustainability package will guarantee the Safe-Hub® a better carbon footprint, financial stability through off-setting operational costs and in the long-run provide access to self-supporting resources for the surrounding community. AMANDLA´s goal is to scale this unique project together with the knodel foundation to 30 Safe-Hubs® across South Africa.
