Established in 2015 by actress and UNHCR ambassador Nomzamo Mbatha, the Nomzamo Lighthouse Foundation’s work is inspired by the plight of South Africa’s most vulnerable and marginalized.
OUR KEY AREAS OF FOCUS:
Through our partnership networks within the public, private and civil sectors we have established scholarship and youth empowerment programmes, positively impacting youth and changing the course of many lives. The foundation has a growing national footprint spanning seven out of nine provinces (i.e. KZN, EC, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, Free-State, WC and Gauteng) and is set to expand to all nine. We continue to develop and expand our programme offering and partnership networks to reach and impact as many lives as possible.
