We are a non-profit organoisation founded by Cyril Madiba.

We inspire change and enable growth.

Our vision is to contribute to a changed society, one that is rid of the challenges of inequality and poverty.

We do this through executing on our mission of implementing practical programmes that empower people and organizations to develop and make positive changes in their lives and communities.

One of the Cyril Madiba Empowerment Foundation's (CMEF) flagship initiatives is a Youth Mentorship Programme (YMP) which is aimed at young people at tertiary level, unemployed graduates and young professionals. The inagurual cohort consisting of 17 mentees commenced in July 2021. Two more cohorts are planned for 2022.

CMEF supports other non-profit youth development organisations through monthly charitable donations. Through this initiative, CMEF currently forms part of the "tree of life" for the Cyril Ramaphosa Education Trust (CRET) Alumni Fund, Afrika Tikkun and SAICA's Thuthuka Bursary Fund.
