The Kathrada Foundation Youth Activism Program is dedicated to carrying on the legacy of the Anti-Apartheid stalwart and Freedom Fighter, Ahmed Mohamed Kathrada.
The program aims to develop the skills and learning capacity of youth in communities across South Africa through organising youth activist clubs at a grassroots level.
Members of these clubs will be taught and trained on how to be an effective community organiser/activist, and will be supported by the foundation through an education and training program.
