Nompumezo Makinana

Joza Branch Coordinator

I am a Journalism graduate from Rhodes University. I have been working in development, especially youth development since 2008. I joined the Upstart Youth Development Project, an after school programme that teaches life skills through media production, as an intern and worked my way up to Project Coordinator. More recently, ‎I worked with Lattitude Global Volunteering and Skillshare International, coordinating their International Citizen Service programmes which bring youth from SA and the UK together to work on a development project. I am passionate about empowering young people and about reading. I have a love for Grahamstown that is second to none.
