Nikithemba is a registered Non-Profit Organisation that was formed by three members Mr. Vusi Nhlanhla Mthembu, Ms Precious Lungisile Gumede and Ms Tshenisile Matilda Cele , who joined hands together with the aim of educating children and young people in Pietermaritzburg. The organisation was registered in 2019, and has the Registration Number: 221/836 NPO.
Nikithemba has identified an opportunity to empower and educate young people through:
- motivational talks;
- stress and anger management;
- crime awareness;
- life skills;
- emotional intelligence;
- character development; and
- counselling with the focus on behavioural changes.
The organisation also focuses on developing young people through honing them with relevant skills and linking them to opportunities within the province of Kwazulu Natal and South Africa.
As an organisation we are aware of the crisis and unbecoming behaviour of learners in schools which affects their future and puts the lives of the educators at risk. Hence Nikithemba partners with different government institutions such as Correctional Services where learners get motivation from inmates, Department of Education, and other stakeholders.
