History

Dlala Nje was founded in October 2012 and, in a nutshell, aims to challenge perceptions and to create opportunities . We do this through running inner-city immersions and experiences in some of our city’s most misunderstood areas . These immersions and walks have allowed us to build and run a community center aimed at providing a safe learning environment for children and youth .
