The NGO Young Africa (YA) works holistically with underprivileged youngsters between 15 and 25 years. It sets up empowerment projects that can be replicated. Young Africa started in 1998 in Zimbabwe. In 2006 the association Young Africa Mozambique was founded. This independent non-governmental organisation is the legal owner of the projects in Beira, Mozambique.
