About uSizo Foundation

uSizo Foundation operates as, a student and youth organization rooted in the University of KwaZulu-Natal and as a Non-Profit Organization based in South Africa.  Our major objectives focus on providing access, information and opportunities to young people.  We work as a mediating group between communities, Non-Government Organisations, Government, Business and other stakeholders to develop new innovative solutions to the challenges facing young people, primarily issues surrounding socioeconomic development. The Foundation continues to identify other youth organisations and civic organisations in South Africa, the region and internationally to work with in through sharing of ideals and implementing its program. Experience and information is drawn from other local, regional and international youth development initiatives to assist in the developing and implementation of projects designed by the foundation.  A lot of experience and advice is also drawn from the Board of Trustees who has expertise in different fields, from Political Science, Development Consultancy, Trade and Development and Human Rights defenders, to name a few. Not forgetting it membership, who are inspiring Academics and Young Professionals. These are the backbone of the organization who manages the daily running of uSizo Foundation.
