''...many projects promoting youth participation/engagement are designed by adults and fail to meet the demands and realities of young people.’’

Hi, I’m Dambisa
A young person who is passionate about finding innovative formats to place other young people at the centre or discussions and processes...
I am an experienced international development professional and youth engagement activist with extensive experience of working closely with CSOs, government stakeholders and the private sector with a focus on youth development, engagement and exchange both personally and professionally.
I am also an experienced speaker & facilitator, one who has facilitated discussions for international conferences, stakeholder engagements and has sat on many panels; Countdown 2030 conference, 2nd African Union Pan African Youth Forum & African Union Youth Corner to name a few.
I represent South Africa on the AU Youth Envoy's Youth Reference Committee as well as sit on the board of Dance For All South Africa.
Join me as I embark on a new journey of making politics palatable again through the work of the civic youth initiative.
''We're living in an era of unprecedented change, and I want to be a part of documenting it.''

Youth are people who are in transition, navigating many identities and responsibilities despite their age variations.
Youth is a time of life when you start to take responsibility.
