Waves for change has introduced the surf culture to Masiphumelele and nearby Monwabisi Beach in 2011. The two communities were in desperate need for a safe and structured distraction from the neglect and ugly environment that has surrounded the local youth.
The organization has created beachside safe hubs that were used to train local community members in the recruitment and engagement of high-risk kids in surfing.
The non-profit organization has continued to expand and impact the lives of the youth . See Waves for Change’s mission and positive influence in this link.
