About the Trust

The Solomon Mahlangu Freedom College (SOMAFCO) Trust is a non-partisan, South African youth development organization which draws its inspiration from the history of SOMAFCO, a college which was established by the African National Congress (ANC) on land donated to it by the Tanzanian government in 1977. SOMAFCO was established with the support of the international solidarity movement during the apartheid years.

The SOMAFCO Trust was established in 2006.

The SOMAFCO Trust empowers youth through its programs namely:

1. OR Tambo Educational Tour (Now Uhuru Africa Initiative)
2. SOMAFCO Enterprise Development Programme
3. SOMAFCO Dialogues
4. SOMAFCO Prize Initiative

“ Today,thanks to the great ventures in SOMAFCO,Mazimbu and Dakawa,that new society, envisaged in the Freedom Charter,in fact is being born” O.R. Tambo, 1985
