Having begun in 2003 in Sinako High School in Khayelitsha, initiated by Joy Olivier and Makhosi Gogwana, IkamvaYouth now has 7 branches in 3 provinces across South Africa. Over these 9 years, we have touched the lives of thousands of learners, parents, teachers, tutors and staff.


#WhereAreTheyNow takes an indepth look at the lives of individuals whose lives have crossed with IkamvaYouth and the changes this brought about.


New faces join us every year and old faces make an appearance every now and then.

With this series of blogs and biographies, we introduce you to all those that believe we made a difference in their lives and those that return to be the difference. We also honour those who have helped IkamvaYouth grow and moved on to other pastures.

In our first interview, we take a look at the life of Buhlebakhe Ngongoma , a return tutor based at our Chesterville branch. He joined IY when it first begun in KZN in 2007 and is now preparing for his Board Exams while studying for his BCom Accounting at UKZN’s Pietermaritzburg Camp.
