BANG Edutainment is a youth-focused organisation that values young people, stands for them, and works with them to become community leaders who will build sustainable communities.

We divert vulnerable, at-risk young people away from crime and negative influences by providing targeted support for them and their families through early intervention programmes that reduce their likelihood of engaging in crime and deviance.
