Sup­port­ing Pro­grams

Men­tor­ship Program

Umoya rec­og­nizes that a com­mu­nity can­not rely on out­side inter­ven­tion for unlim­ited time and thus aims to gen­er­ate suf­fi­cient momen­tum so that in due course the pro­gram becomes self-​sustainable. There­fore all our pro­grams focus on devel­op­ing indi­vid­u­als to a point where they can be equipped for adult­hood, and then ulti­mately be released into adult­hood, know­ing that they can make a mean­ing­ful con­tri­bu­tion to soci­ety in gen­eral. Every life trans­formed becomes a liv­ing wit­ness, which in turn can trans­form other lives.

Umoya aims to iden­tify learn­ers with strong lead­er­ship skills through­out all the pro­grams offered. These young learn­ers are then invited to focused, one-​on-​one men­tor­ship pro­grams with a ded­i­cated men­tor on a reg­u­lar basis. Men­tors and mentees clar­ify their own objec­tives with the need for train­ing and guid­ance through­out the process being of the utmost impor­tance. Reg­u­lar feed­back ses­sions are held (one on one and in a group for­mat), to mea­sure the individual’s progress and the suc­cess of the program.

The Men­tors:

Umoya African Acad­emy recruits short and medium to long term vol­un­teers to form part of our staff. These vol­un­teers are recruited from South Africa, the UK and the USA and are intro­duced into the var­i­ous pro­grams in place.

All vol­un­teers are assigned to one or more projects within our three main Pro­grams:
• Coach­ing (Sport)
• Men­tor­ing (Aca­d­e­mic)
• Facil­i­ties (Upgrad­ing and struc­tural repairs to Umoya build­ings and facilities)

They also have the oppor­tu­nity to enjoy and expe­ri­ence the amaz­ing land­scape South Africa has to offer in the forms of safari excur­sions and towns of South Africa dur­ing their free time.


Umoya strives to pro­vide facil­i­ties in the fol­low­ing categories:
  • Ded­i­cated club­house and sports facilities
  • Ded­i­cated facil­i­ties for it’s online school programs
  • Places of safety for chil­dren who face dire circumstances
  • Gym and other recre­ational facilities
  • Ser­vice Cen­ter for bycycles
