Isiqalo Foundation Trust Waves for Change

When you jump for Waves for Change, you jump for positive youth development! Thank you for supporting our programmes along the South African coast and in Liberia, which reach over 700 children each week and employ local youth to mentor vulnerable children.

By fusing the rush of surfing with evidence-based mind/body therapy, Waves for Change provides a child-friendly mental health service to vulnerable and differently-abled youth living in under-resourced communities. Through access to safe spaces, caring mentors, and a provision of weekly surf therapy sessions, W4C gives children skills to cope with stress, regulate behaviour, build healing relationships, and make positive life choices.
