My motivation to join SaferSpaces:

I'm a young man who comes from a background of drugs and gang activity, with which I was involved for 7 years. Knowing the struggles of life, I have now started my own NPO with the mission of helping our youth in marginalised commuities to make wiser decisions and set themselves goals which will make them into positive community role models.

I'm working in these sectors:
I'm specialising in these topics:

We use sports as a vehicle to minimise the challenges our youth face on a daily basis, like gang activity and drug abuse. We create a safe space for youths aged 16-35 to join our sports programmes, which includes participating in Like Skills workshops where they set themselves short-term goals.
