CSR: Community development
The Message Nyanga: Youth Outreach Project
Our Flagship CSR project for the year takes place in a township labelled “The murder capital of the world”. Through a strategic shared-value partnership, with the Message Trust, we will hold hands at a grassroots level. This involves: setting up quality infrastructure, facilitating training and development and supporting of the immediate community.
Our desire is to see spiritual growth, sports development and educational excellence in a community that we are truly hopeful for. In the future we see Nyanga labelled as the “Potential capital of the world”.

A man called Mkhululi (MK for short) who whilst in prison, had his life turned around when he gave His life to Lord. And even before he was released, he had a vision to run a football project in his community, recognising that it was the lack of a father figure in his life that led to his involvement with gangs and crime. Seven years later, his vision has become a reality as part of Eden Nyanga. Omni sponsored a soccer event called “Kickstart” on youth day.
