About Waumbe

Our Story

We are a fast growing Youth Development Centre in the farming community of Fisantekraal, Western Cape. Waumbe Youth Development, in line with its mandate to equip the youth, believes that the window to economic freedom lies in education and mental empowerment. Through multi faceted interventions rooted in our Academic Development & Innovation; Societal Reform and Achiever’s Awards’ pillars we impact human development holistically.
