Egolisquash Youth Empowerment (EYE), is a holistic development program that focuses on empowering and enabling young people to positively contribute to the upliftment of their community, and society at large.
We are involved in communities where households are struggling with high unemployment rates, unstable family units, and youth who are exposed to environments with crime and violence nearly every day of their lives.
By providing a platform to engage these vulnerable and precious members of our communities, we seek to challenge conventional approaches to problem solving in these communities, and practically enable the youth to constructively invest in their communities.
Our passion lies in ensuring that both girls and boys from disadvantaged communities have the chance to have fun, while learning the skills necessary to reach their goals and positively contribute to their communities.
Additionally, we have established a board of control to ensure the continuity of the programme through sound financial and governance structures. The Directors are all involved on a voluntary basis and give of their time and expertise. They are David Barrow, Lesley Cowan, Barry Hendriks, Glenn Lazarus, Kelvin Ndhlovu and Craig Van Der Wath.
