Charity profile

Zakheni provides creative arts workshops, training and mentoring for Child and Youth care workers, in order to strengthen psychosocial support service to vulnerable children. We also offer creative arts therapy in schools and youth groups in vulnerable communities affected by violence and poverty throughout South Africa.

The Zakheni Arts Therapy Foundation works with the arts in a unique way, combining therapy and healing with the arts. Our primary focus is training and up-skilling youth and child care workers to use the creative arts.

Music, dance art and drama have always been an intrinsic part of a community’s capacity to express, support and heal. Zakheni combines inherent and indigenous wisdom with current methodology around trauma, therapy and psychosocial support and care to offer unique programmes to our partner organisations. Providing tools for mental wellbeing, Zakheni is steadily leaving a positive footprint within the South African psyche.

Let's keep this innovative work going!
