Lighthouse Foundation exists to bring holistic transformation to the under-served youth of Khayelitsha township through the pillars of Education, Youth Cafe gatherings and Entrepreneurship. We aim to see young people happy and fulfilled in life, work, and family, as well as to see them make a positive contribution to society.
We believe in order for us to see total transformation in our communities, we need have leaders who are passionate about empowering and equipping young people so that they can walk in their full potential. Leaders who do not seek self enrichments but rather leaders who want to see individuals and communities transformed holistically; Leaders that prioritizes the needs and wants of the people.
Lighthouse Foundation was founded in 2018 and is comprised of a diverse group of staff and volunteers, we are a faith based, non-profit organization situated in the beautiful township of Khayelitsha, in Cape Town, South Africa. With a focus on Youth Development, we seek to impact young people, children, and families.
As we became more acquainted with this community, we soon discovered a number of gaps that were hindering this community from flourishing. Namely, high unemployment rates, high school drop out rates, and a lack of after-school programs that could help stimulate the growth of young people instead of having young people loiter in the streets without any purpose.
Our programmes are developed to bring change in Khayelitsha and to have a positive impact towards the community
