Prezi Present from USA

In South Africa we sometimes call a present a prezi, and now the real Prezi became a present!

Youthzones members can be delighted with the fantastic news that we will receive 33 Prezi licenses for free from Prezi themselves! The licenses are worth R 36 729 per annum, which makes a fantastic resource available to ordinary citizens. "This type of collaboration is…

Beauty of networking

Today while working on my admin work in Mutare site, I just had a Skype call from one of my best friends from Mozambique Americo Chauque. Only for him to know that I am just across the border in Zim. He then said he will be crossing the border to catch up. Networking either Facebook, Skype, youthzones website, emails, texts, just solves problems.…

Mutare - Live and Kicking

Yes it's true, Doc and Simon are in the house!!!!! Exactly on the 17th of January this year, I wrote about the resurrection of Mutare after their visit. Today, 5 months later, this hardworking pair is here again. We are proud to say Mutare has been very live and kicking. We are so excited that we received a lovely TV set and DVD for our Mindset programs. It's so humbling and uplifting to be considered by Youthzones considering our geographical position. We feel so much loved such that our…

Power of Team Work

One piece of log creates a small fire, adequate to warm you up, add just a few more pieces to blast an immense bonfire, large enough to warm up your entire circle of friends; needless to say that individuality counts but team work dynamites...A group becomes a team when each member is sure enough of himself and his contribution to praise the skills of the others. As youth we have to work and attain great in our Lives.

.......A FUEL to success....

It is important to know where you are going than to see how far you need to get there. In life, there is a time to let things happen and a time to make things happen. Unnecessary haste not only puts you under pressure, it also makes you run faster than God and that ultimately results in disaster. Life is in season, which means we are to do different things at different times. Always listening to God before you take a step. . . Of what good is running if you're headed in the wrong direction?…

Power within, revived endeed!

When it all started I had no idea what to expect, boy I was in for a suprise. First day we collected leaders from arround South Africa and my friend from Zimbabwe (Teremai) and the last one to arrive was Scara from Upington. What a joy it was to see new friendly faces ad as for me, I knew a few people already i.e. Tumelo (JF), Mondli (Umlazi), The coach Katlehong and obviously Teremia (Zim, Mutare).

Early morning the following day was also a surpprise as there were new faces yet…

Getting to Johannesburg....Great Moments 2

I have just landed in Jozi for the first time, excitement felt by every nerve in my system. I followed the track that was taken by my fellow travelers inside the OR Tambo International Airport, and I simple wanted to know where I can board the next Gautrain to Johannesburg Park Station. I made a quick call to Doc Mabila, just to be sure before an serious decision were made, Doctor confirmed all that I needed to know, and I went straight to a security guard from a distance away, and asked…

A Wowza!!

When I found out about the Youthzones workshop that I would be part of, I really didn't know what to expect: was it going to be a formal gathering were we all get together and speak of how great Youthzones is, would we be introduced to well booked people who know everything, people who exaggerated real life experiences and made legend of reality, dreamers, or at the furthest extent party animals who did not care much about the actual workshop...

These questions loomed in my head as I…

Combination of Arsenal and Celta vigo Evaton North playing against Kaizer Chiefs under 17

We hosted Kaizer Chiefs Under 17 yesterday afternoon and the game was full of energy and enthusiasm.

The aim of the game was for our players to be scouted by Kaizer Chiefs coaches and at the same time enjoying football at its best. Unfortunately we lost 1-0 but fortunate enough our 3 players were selected and they are going for training at Bosmond next week for their first session with the team.

Using Youth Day to Remember

"June 16 is a day with bitter memories, but we have to remember and remember to look forward" said Doc Mabila during an event in Intabazwe, Harrismith. 

In the picture above, we see how the 'ngamulas' got involved in youth day: some donating wors, others chips and bread, some cold drinks, some fire wood and others meat. We think this assistance shows…

My Perfect Dream Girl (Helderberg Community Sends Greetings)

She used to sit just outside the library on the stairs where all the diligent and geeky students gathered. She had this school teacher vibe about her, always appearing to be in-tune with her books or deep in thought with something totally profound.

She had this habit of slowly running her fingers through her thinly braided human hair and…
