What is SIYA Zimbabwe

Simukaupenye Integrated Youth Academy (SIYA) Zimbabwe Trust is a youth-led organization founded by Wellington Bakaimani in 2016. It was registered with the Government of Zimbabwe in 2016 under DEEDS Registrar, registration number MA 0001433/2016. Young people in Zimbabwe face different problems that require innovative ways to address them. Youths are key agents of positive change hence our main focus is to empower young people to take the lead in developmental programs within their community through a well-integrated system. We use sport to reach out to young people with different programs. The organization has ventured into mutual partnerships with more youth-serving organizations in Zimbabwe to promote effective collaborations. We are currently operating in Mashonaland Central and Masvingo Provinces. The organization have a broader volunteer base of diverse and active young people across Zimbabwe and is being managed by a youthful team with a board of advisors.
