Youth With Diabetes (YWD) is a registered non-profit organisation that was founded in 2005 by a team of healthcare professionals and teens living with diabetes. Our organisational goals include raising awareness about diabetes in children; facilitating diabetes weekend camps for all youth living with diabetes; to promote skills development within young leaders living with diabetes and to promote general healthy lifestyles to prevent diabetes.

Over the past nine years, we have expanded our weekend camps to operate in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Bloemfontein, George, Port Elizabeth, East London, Botswana and Namibia.

All of the work done by YWD runs solely on donations, fundraising and the dedication of our volunteers.
