WHAT WE DO
INEDEM is a platform that is focused on creating and effecting change through engaging children and youth to develop skills, talents, and the leadership necessary to positively impact their communities.
Together we enable children and youth to reach their full potential and realise their ambitions. We support them in their personal development and to build positive relationships. We support them to develop the confidence through workshops and networking events. We work with all children and youth but more importantly those who would not otherwise have access to opportunities we offer.
