Description

The Masifunde Changemaker Academy in the heart of Walmer Township is home to most of our programmes: Life skills trainings, visual arts, drama and choir, and academic support. In the morning it serves as a training venue for the extended community and as service provider for the local schools by offering computer and visual art lessons.

Our MyMito Cafeteria offers healthy and affordable meals and cappuccino to the community of Walmer Township. It is open Monday to Friday 8:30 - 17:00.

The Masifunde Changemaker Academy was planned with the youth of Walmer Township since 2009 and eventually opened in September 2017 in close partnership with our funder Knorr Bremse Global Care.
