IMCOSA sees for itself a relevant role in taking co-responsibility for trying to achieve greater social justice and in sharing our resources and knowledge with less privileged groups and individuals. We currently support various organisations in different ways:
Since February 2009, Julia Willand has been actively engaged as a member of the board of trustees and as chairperson of Educo Africa. Educo Africa is a youth development organisation that was started in 1994. Educo uses wilderness experiential learning as a profound platform for young people to discover and experience their inherent potential. In a second phase, Educo Africans become part of a youth movement supporting them in living their potential, with a specific focus on securing livelihood and increasing social and environmental wellbeing. Educo's vision is for young people to understand their roles as powerful agents of change - actively, confidently and positively contributing towards a better global community. Educo's mission is to develop in young South Africans a sense of vision, initiative, contribution and personal responsibility, with emphasis on taking charge of the future through active citizenship and community building, collaborative leadership, a spirit of Ubuntu, and care for the environment. Apart from the personal engagement by its founder, IMCOSA and its team support Educo Africa with funding, fundraising initiatives and professional advice.
