Since the turning of the soil in 2001 this centre grew from just more than a hall on an empty piece of land to a fully fledged community centre.  Legacy’s growth is an organic process and a wonderful expedition together with the Kayamandi community and all the partners that joined us through the years.

Legacy Community Development is a Non Profit Company (with Section 18A exemption) with the Legacy Centre in Kayamandi as base. It is represented by its directors – Maphelo Ntshanga, Brendan Venter, Dirk Ehlers and Louise Fourie.  The programmes are run by permanent staff members, but are also linked to the passion, skills and gifts of volunteers (especially from Stellenbosch Congregation and the University of Stellenbosch).  Legacy’s programmes are built on values (care, trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, good citizenship and faith)  - in line with a programme of ‘Character for Life’.

This video tells the true story of Athinkosi, a teenager living in Kayamandi, a township in Stellenbosch, South Africa. It's a story of hope and a better future, created by the goodwill and love of others.
