Lungile Simakade

Masiphumelele Branch Assistant
I am originally from the Eastern Cape but grew up in Cape Town, Makhaza. Post- matric I completed three leadership short courses at Stellenbosch University in 2015. I joined IkamvaYouth in 2012 as a tutor at the Makhaza branch and through the organisation I networked and got involved in other after-school programmes such as the Year Beyond programme, Numeric and Action Volunteers Africa (AVA). Grooming and investing in the education of the youth is my passion, and I believe the fruits and country's wealth revolves around empowered young people.
