IGNITE Youth Organisation is a non-profit organisation and thus we depend upon the generous gifts and donations from organisations, companies, churches and individuals to continue the work we are doing with young people. We accept both monetary and in-kind gifts and donations. You can send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with details about your gift and donation, and the Program you want to support.
For cash donations, once you send us an email with the details of the amount you would like to donate, we will send you our bank details. We are currently still working on our online payment system for donations.
For in-kind gifts, we can always use:
- good quality used clothes for babies/children/teenagers/young adults (male and female)
- items of sports equipment (deflated footballs, volleyballs, cricket bats, football shirts)
- toiletries for young women (soap, deodorant, body lotion, sanitary towels, toothbrushes)
- items of office stationary (paper, pens, exercise books/notebooks, staplers, computers, chairs, desks)
- items of band equipment (mics, cables, speakers, music instruments)
Thank you very much! We look forward to receiving your email! Your gift and donation will go a long way in helping us reach more youth, and impact more communities and societies.
IGNITE Youth provides a purpose-centered approach to career guidance and coaching so as to help teenagers aged 13-19 years and young adults aged 20-29 years, to create meaningful careers for themselves. Through a holistic approach to youth development, we are unleashing young people's creative and innovative power, creating the next generation of African Leaders who are contributing positively to the communities they live in and rising above socio-economic challenges. We help them to think critically and innovatively about how they can contribute solutions to the problems their communities and country face.
We help youth to find and create purpose-driven careers for their lives that are personally fulfilling to them, and at the same time motivated by a desire to make a difference in their community, nation and world, beyond the self.
We do this through 8 holistic Programs that nurture their interests and areas of passion, and help them to gain self-esteem and self sustaining habits for life. We support young people from a variety of backgrounds, including young people from underserved communities, disadvantaged backgrounds and teen moms.
The 8 Programs we run are IGNITE Creativity, IGNITE Influencers, IGNITE Hope, IGNITE Girls, IGNITE Lifeline, IGNITE Sports, IGNITE Mentorship and IGNITE Tech Innovations.
IGNITE draws together a network of local and international organisations, youth leaders, religious organisations, schools, groups, professionals and individuals who share a common vision to empower young Africans.
Youth who are passionate about pursuing a career in sports, particularly basketball and volleyball, will get a chance to learn how to play like a pro from sports professionals and develop the disciplines needed to be successful sportsmen and women.
Through the Community Collaborators program, Tadzi was paired up with Layla Fry, the Director of Operations for Southwest Key Programs, which is one of the largest Hispanic nonprofits in the United States.
IGNITE is creating a refuge emergency shelter, providing temporary housing to teens ages 12-19 who have become victims of early marriages and who have become teen moms. Room, board and supportive programs are offered to assist in their reintegration.
