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.  C4L is also moving slowly into the Internet environment as the "digital divide" gradually closes, bringing Africa onto the information highway.

From 2015...

We welcome you to explore our site, which is under renovation.  That is because C4L itself is under renovation in late 2015.  Fewer people ever reach the C4L campus as volumes increase with outreach and outsourcing.  So the website is now designed to reach those who won't get to C4L.  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 the age group it serves enlists in C4L programmes largely through other media, not the web.  Thus to streamline this site, the above focus has been adopted and the site is being renovated specifically for this audience.
