Empowering young people ….one life at a time.

Empowering the youth….to lead with purpose.

Learn today, lead tomorrow: the power of life skills education.

Embracing differences….Empowering all abilities

The Sakh’Ulutsha Lifeskills Education Initiative was birthed in the early 1990s to “build our youth”.
By harnessing the energy and passion of volunteers, we deliver life changing programs to children and young people. Sakh’Ulutsha is an NPO and PBO and provides a wide range of youth development services in and out of school.


We dream of a transformed society where young people are filled with hope and are active change agents. We do this by building communities one young life at a time.

How we make an impact:

Sakh’Ulutsha’s teams present a range of exciting programmes, in two main areas:

Lifeskills education in schools

Safe places for youth development

Leaner support in schools

Peer education

Gender specific programs

Holiday Programs

Sport and other extra-curricular support

Youth center programs especially computers

Leadership development

STEM education

Embracing differences….Empowering all abilities

We are striving to be inclusive to youth that are differently abled and Deaf.  We know that our programs to the differently abled and Deaf youth in South Africa will have tremendous value in promoting diversity, equality, and social inclusion.

These programs will create opportunities for young people with disabilities and hearing impairments to participate fully in society and develop their skills and talents, just like their peers. By breaking down barriers and challenging stereotypes, these programs will help to build a more inclusive and accepting society, where everyone can contribute and reach their full potential.

We are seeking like minded companies that understand the importance of inclusion to partner with us to develop resources and programs suitable to implement at our schools and communities for children with disabilities and the Deaf.
