IGNITE Youth Organisation is a non-profit organisation and thus we depend upon the generous gifts and donations from organisations, companies, churches and individuals to continue the work we are doing with young people. We accept both monetary and in-kind gifts and donations. You can send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with details about your gift and donation, and the Program you want to support.
For cash donations, once you send us an email with the details of the amount you would like to donate, we will send you our bank details. We are currently still working on our online payment system for donations.
For in-kind gifts, we can always use:
- good quality used clothes for babies/children/teenagers/young adults (male and female)
- items of sports equipment (deflated footballs, volleyballs, cricket bats, football shirts)
- toiletries for young women (soap, deodorant, body lotion, sanitary towels, toothbrushes)
- items of office stationary (paper, pens, exercise books/notebooks, staplers, computers, chairs, desks)

Thank you very much! We look forward to receiving your email! Your gift and donation will go a long way in helping us reach more youth, and impact more communities and societies.
IGNITE Youth Organisation is dedicated to unleashing the innovative and creative power of young people to shape development.
We do this through 6 holistic Programs that build their entrepreneurial, innovative, leadership and creative skills, and help them to gain self-esteem and self sustaining habits for life. Our Programs are also designed to help young people think critically and innovatively about how they can contribute solutions to the problems their communities face. We support young people from a variety of backgrounds, including young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and teen moms.
We help them to rise above their challenges, begin to think like overcomers and not victims.
The 6 Programs we run are IGNITE Creativity, IGNITE Influencers, IGNITE Hope, IGNITE Girls, IGNITE Lifeline and IGNITE Sports. The Lifeline Program was created in response to rising rates of suicide and addiction spurred on by the tough economic challenges most African youth face as they transition from their teenage into adulthood. We help youth develop their emotional intelligence through tools that deal with depression, challenges and set-backs in their young adulthood.
IGNITE draws together a network of local and international organisations, youth leaders, religious organisations, schools, groups, professionals and individuals who share a common vision to empower young Africans.
Through the Community Collaborators program, Tadzi was paired up with Layla Fry, the Director of Operations for Southwest Key Programs, which is one of the largest Hispanic nonprofits in the United States.
IGNITE is creating a refuge emergency shelter, providing temporary housing to teens ages 12-19 who have become victims of early marriages and who have become teen moms. Room, board and supportive programs are offered to assist in their reintegration.
