Welcome to C4L
Leadership • Lifeskills • Listening • Livelihoods
The Desmond Tutu Centre for Leadership, also known as C4L, is a nonprofit organization located at White River in Mpumalanga Province, South Africa. It has a small campus and it offers both accredited and non-formal (i.e. refresher) training mainly to youth.
It is not only a place of learning but also a base for outreach projects - into local communities and beyond, mainly in South Africa but even to other countries like Mozambique and Swaziland.
C4L is also moving slowly into the Internet environment as the "digital divide" gradually closes, bringing Africa onto the information highway.
We welcome you to explore our site, which is being refreshed in mid 2016. That is because C4L itself is also under renovation. Fewer people than ever reach the C4L campus as we ramp up both outreach and outsourcing. We are following the "more with less" approach otherwise known as the "Gideon principle".
This website is designed to reach those who aren't likely to get to the C4L campus. In other words, friends of C4L whose contributions resource it - whether regularly or occasionally, whether philanthropic or business.
Those who have something other than finance to offer - to help achieve the goals of C4L, such as:
- Volunteers willing to come and assist us in our work
- Customers looking for a training venue to book
- Those who can support C4L with prayer
A footnote of explanation - C4L has concluded that its target group enlists in C4L programmes largely through other media, not the website. Thus to streamline this site, the above focus has been adopted and the site is aimed at that audience.
