Who are CYPSA?

Umphakathi Okhathazekile (the Concerned Young People of South Africa) is a non-profit organisation which was started by concerned people of South Africa in 2009 and then registered as an NPO in 2010 and as a PBO in 2018.

The moral decay in our communities caused such great distress to us that we could not keep silent any longer. We have united in taking a stand against the devastation caused by the many social ills plaguing our nation.

CYPSA realizes that many South Africans are concerned about the direction in which S.A. is heading.

As an organization representing grass-roots communities across the country, we invite all concerned South Africans from all cultures, races and communities to share (anonymously if so wished) their concerns with us:

CYPSA believes in nation building and strives towards a better future for all!


CYPSA Restoration Programme

CYPSA runs a three week (21 day) Restoration Programme for those struggling with addictions and other challenges.

We do not charge for this three week Programme and meals and accomodation are provided.

Those wishing to enroll in the Programme must finance their transport to our head office as well as the transport for their return home after the completion of the 21 day Programme.

Minors must be accompanied by an older person who will sign them into the Programme.

Those attending the Programme must arrive with the following items:

  • Original ID book or temporary ID
  • Clothing and toiletries
  • Bedding

Kindly note: Due the overwhelming need across the country and the resulting high level of intakes, we are currently enrolling only first-time visitors in our Restoration Programme.
