Local partner

Waves for Change grew across Cape Town by training and resourcing community mentors to engage youth in after-school surf and mentoring programmes. It also partnered with the University of Cape Town to run a formative evaluation of its programmes.

Waves for Change works in communities affected by violence, poverty and conflict, where mental health services are often stigmatized and under-resourced.

The actual sites are Masiphumelele, Monwabisi, Lavender Hill, Port Elizabeth, East London and Harper, Liberia.
