    Y.E.U (Yenzokuhle Empowering & Uniting the Nation)






    Every human being has the right to be happy. Our vision is to not only help vulnerable individuals celebrate Special occasions in their lives but we hope to also alleviate inner self critic, inspire them to dream and teach them about self - appreciation.






    Our Mission is to RESTORE a little bit of hope in the lives of our beneficiaries, make them realize that they too matter and that they are not forgotten.


    The aim is not to start something, but to end it….(ending the cycle of negative inner critic!)


    * Because we are ALL destined for greatness.





  • Our lift A Buddy Programmes & Projects!


    We seek to Promote, Improve and Empower the Nation!!!


    Y.E.P aims to bring joy into these precious souls lives, and create an everlasting memory even if it's just for a day. . For a person to not know the love of a family, is a great injustice. We all need a little bit of hope in our lives - and so do orphans and homeless people. Y.E.P strives to do things differently, our intention is to not only give hope but to RESTORE hope to the hopeless.


    Orphans Christmas (Project)!


    This yearly project is designed to help orphans and underprivileged children from childheaded households celebrate their Christmas, and make them realize that they too matter and have not been forgotten. Orphans are assessed for their christmas gift wishes, and the organization fulfils them on Christmas day. We turn those boring Christmas lunches into something not only exciting and fun but educational, therapeutic and empowering.




    "What people fail to realize is that, we orphans carry all of our burdens that life has handed to us from the moment we become orphans at whatever age. Everything we know and used to know about ourselves is gone, we are faced with a painful, empty, meaningless and frightening life. We are faced with having to find the spirit within to make sense of our lives, find courage to give ourselves direction. It is very depressing and it hurts to feel like you're alone and that the world doesn’t care." - Anonymous




    Orphans Birthday (Project)!


    Based on extensive research, it was found that most if not all orphanages across South Africa celebrate orphan’s birthdays in the simplest most common way of just buying a birthday cake due to financial constraints.


    This special project aims to not only teach orphans about self-appreciation but also aims to make them feel valued, appreciated and loved by helping them celebrate their special day by taking them out to the movies, spa, bowling, ice skating, meeting and greeting people they look up to etc and most of all, making it memorable. 


    Homeless Project!


    This project is all about making one feel like they are cared about, they matter, and most importantly it aims to make them feel like they belong, even if its just for one day. 




    "We are all on our own individual journeys. We all long to belong to something, somewhere or to someone. Homelessness is not just caused by substance abuse, the physically handicapped or people with mental illness, it can happen to anyone. Most times than not, people do drugs to numb their pain, no one wakes up and decide to become a junkie from now on till the end of their lives, it happens by default. Life is painful, we don’t deal with it the same way, for others, the solution is to commit suicide when their tired of depression and see no way out, for others it  is to take drugs to numb the pain. All they need is for someone to say I’m here, I care”. No-one should be homeless, affordable housing should be a right and not a privilege”. - Anonymous


    Elderly / Old Age Project!


    This project is all about remembering, and appreciating every single senior citizen all over the world. Nobody should feel like they have been forgotten. Our intention is to make every vulnerable person feel loved and that they are cared about.




    “Most of us suffer from various psycho-social and environmental problems including the feeling of neglect, loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted in a family as well as the society - We just want to be loved like everybody else does.” - Anonymous
