For Those Who Empower
RISE UP AND EMPOWER PEOPLE
RISE UP AND EMPOWER OUR FUTURE!
We are just a bunch of ordinary young people who came together and saw a common need in society, a need for leaders. At Phakama we lead, we do not follow. We see where we can help, where society needs us most, and we act. Phakama means to Rise Up, we are doing exactly that.
We have one purpose as Phakama. A purpose that inspires us as an organisation and that has inspired youth for a millennia. To empower. Our goal is simple, to create change agents and to inspire change. Young people who look at the world with a splint of hope and passion in their eyes.
The youth are not the future of tomorrow, the youth are the future of today. Youth empowerment was not something that only happened on that fateful day of June 16 in South Africa, but rather continues to live in us, it continues to live in the youth, it continues to live in you.
EMPOWER THE WORLD: ONE STEP, ONE HEART,
ONE PRSON AT A TIME
We do not measure success by traditional means. Followers, clout, popularity are secondary. We measure success by the amount of lives we have impacted. We aim to empower more lives than we can ever count. The day there is no more lives to impact – Phakama would have achieved its vision.
"YOU GOTTA MAKE A CHANGE. ITS TIME FOR US
AS A PEOPLE TO START MAKING CHANGES,
LET'S CHANGE THE WAY WE EAT,
LETS CHANGE THE WE LIVE AND
LETS'S CHANGE THE WAY WE TREAT EACH OTHER.
YOU SEE THE OLD WAY WASNT WORKING
SO IT'S ON US, TO DO WHAT WE GOTTA TO SURVIVE"
