The ultimate mission of Ikamva Labantwana Bethu is to transform the township of Crossroads and surrounding townships, from being the murder capitals and high crime rating townships to being a place of peace, a place where kids have access to quality education, and a place where the out of school youth are equipped with soft and hard skills.

The tools of transformation in this vision is education, skills development and employment creation for the youth and adults of Crossroads and its neighbouring townships.

It makes me feel very good to see people change, to see people transform, and seeing people becoming the best version of themselves.
