The Dlalisa Moyeni Foundation presents the inaugural Annual Youth Conference for Boys & Men on the 28th of November in Mamelodi.The aim of this project is to develop men that are responsible and committed to their personal well-being, and that of their families, society, and the environment at large. It deals with the psychosocial as well as the physical dynamics of the male being and population.
The Dlalisa Moyeni Foundation was founded in 2016 by Bongani and Tumisang Skosana, in memory of Bongani’s father, Dlalisa Moyeni, who was known for his community work. The foundation focuses on directing male figures in our society towards optimal responsibility, care, health, compassion, and leadership. To date, the Skosana family funds the foundation’s programme and its operations.
The foundation introduced this project in response to the ongoing and unfortunate attacks on women and children in our society. They decided to respond with an online campaign and online discussion forums. The Conference is geared to be a national and recurring conference.
“Our 2020 efforts have been interwoven into society’s immediate challenges. We responded to the challenges of the raging Covid-19 pandemic by implementing a voluntary feeding scheme in Mamelodi, Pretoria. Our food scheme has supported more than 14 000 community members with food provisions since May 2020,” said the foundation.
The event will be screened live, catering for 300 people. All-access to the event is free. The event features several impactful individuals like Israel Matseke-Zulu, and round table conversations, which include topics relating to the psychological wellbeing of our chosen community segment, led by fully qualified professionals.
“All these efforts, we believe will make an impact on our male society members, their orientation, and the quality of their lives and overall contribution to society at large,” the foundation concluded. Interested individuals can visit www.dlalisamoyenifoundation.org.za
