Our New Programme

Ringa Nami "Means Talk to me !"

Teenagers and Youth Health of South Africa has established a Structured Intervention Project that will play an important role to our community and it will embrace the untapped generosity of our community and the project name is (RINGA NAMI).

RINGA NAMI Project:RINGA NAMI means” talk to me” in the Kasi slang or in the township language. The main aim of this project is to break the silence and create platforms to engage through conversation.  Although conversation may seem insignificant, but we believe that it is extremely necessary to maintain a healthy lifestyle and engage on different thoughts and emotions. Whether it be talking about something that’s troubling you or just having a general chat, communication is valid in achieving a better mental state. 

 We believe that through talking everything can be resolved but there are many difficulties in finding the right person as you need to feel that you can trust the person you are talking to. The RINGA NAMI intends to reduce crime, substance abuse, Gender Based Violence and to groom young boys and girls to make them realize their potential and become active and responsible citizens who can contribute positively to the society.
