Youth Facilitator Mentor - Sthembiso Nkambule


Sthembiso Nkambule is a trained Community Development Practionner living in Embonisweni, White River.  Sthembiso is married to Thulisile with a son named Blessing and a daughter, Praise.

The youth facilitator team mentor is Sthembiso Nkambule who travels to their schools on a regular basis supporting and counselling the youth facilitators.  Sthembiso assisted the schools to identify the youth facilitators through a process of interviews in each school.  The schools short listed a group of potential candidates and along with the school support committee, one youth facilitator was chosen by a panel of stakeholders from the schools.  

Sthembiso visits the 9 schools and monitors, counsels and supports the youth facilitator as well as the learners and staff.  He is a gifted speaker and is often asked to be the guest speaker at events and assemblies.  In addition, he writes reports on a monthly basis from the information compiled by the youth team.
Sthembiso also comes from a very disadvantaged background, is a trained counsellor and understands the needs and problems of youth and children.   Through his own life experience and compassion, he spends a lot of time working with the youth team, guides and directs their work and liaises with the schools on matters pertaining to the children with whom they work.  He is also very active in his community running programmes for youth.

In 2013, another school joined our youth facilitator team project.  Lugebhuta High School in Schoemansdal, near the Swaziland border, has a full time youth facilitator in the school, Dan'sile Shongwe.  She is supported by the Yebo Foundation in the Netherlands.
