of Africa is
in our Hands
Dr. Makamba is an entrepreneur who was born and raised in Zimbabwe in southern Africa. He was driven to establish a foundation to give young people access to quality education and so build a strong foundation for their future.
The foundation inspires and empowers young learners between the ages of 14 and 18 years, providing a balanced framework for self-development that will increase their self-esteem and leadership capabilities, as well as enhance their capacity to achieve in whatever context they find themselves in.
The Ibbamo Foundation develops and supports targeted programmes for young people who are committed to building a better South Africa. At the core of these programmes is a multi-dimensional approach to youth development: we focus on education as the common point of departure while addressing a basket of youth-related issues.
The foundation’s programmes are centred around four strategic pillars, namely:
- Academic Excellence
- Social Responsibility
Ibbamo is committed to ensuring that South Africa’s young people are challenged to look beyond their existing barriers and set ambitious yet attainable goals.
We believe in challenging our young people to create the reality that they deserve.
