The core principles of MylifE
Youths are removed from a cycle of destruction in order for self-worth to be re-established
A new dedication to self pride and livelihood
A taking part of a life embodied by love, support, care, family, Ubuntu, boundaries, access to schools, skills development and business opportunities
Sustainability is the key to this programmes success. The reformed youths become leaders and “pay it forward” to the next generation of applicants. These people literally embody the term and motto of ‘Be The Change’
The spirit of UBUNTU, a call for participation
The Ubuntu Village Project- which involves the development of self-sustaining community villages- helps to reintegrate marginalised youths back into society
The MyLife ideology that a sense of pride comes from involvement in the creation of one's home and dedication to one's livelihood is paramount to the success of the villages- Pride stemming from ownership.
