Connecting, Equipping & Inspiring Leaders of Today and Tomorrow

Over 8 million youth in South Africa are not in education, employment or training. We’re working to change that.

Let’s create a better narrative for youth. Together.

who is enke?

enke: Make Your Mark (enke) incubates youth-led social impact projects, developing the skills of youth to increase their effectiveness as leaders and ability to contribute to a positive future.

We do this by connecting, equipping, and inspiring young people to implement social impact projects that tackle issues that affect their communities. This contributes to developing effective young leaders – youth who have the desire and capability to access post-school opportunities, whether that’s an internship, employment, entrepreneurship, or civic leadership.

We have been incubating youth-led social impact projects since 2009 and are specialists in capacitating youth towards social innovation, social cohesion and social responsibility. We have trained over 2,000 youth, whose projects have had a positive impact on over 40,000 people in communities across South Africa.

Additionally, through the shared experience of enke’s programs, youth become part of a community of diverse youth who are autonomously working towards achieving better futures for and with each other.

Through our Programs we empower and support young people to create meaningful change on the issues they care about most, whilst simultaneously developing their own skills.

At enke we work with young people aged 15 -30 years; inspiring and training them to develop innovative solutions to serious issues. They develop the skills that lead to future employment success and create real impact in their communities.
