Xaveri Movement South Africa is a member of Xaveri International, which is registered with the PONTIFICAL COUNCIL FOR THE LAITY (Holy See) as an International Catholic Youth Movement of Action in Parochial. Xaveri is a pro-active Catholic Youth Movement for sustainable development, initiated by missionaries of Africa in central Africa in 1952. The name: XAVERI comes from the original title of Saint FRANCIS XAVIER, the patron saint of missions.

Xaveri brings together young people in a congenial and happy atmosphere inspired by the spirit of healthy African traditions. It aims to inspire a sense of active African youth, solidarity and tolerance among the young people of Africa and to involve them in shaping the future of Africa. It promotes mobility within and beyond the Africa borders, non-formal learning and intercultural dialogue, and encourages the inclusion of all young people, regardless of their educational, social and cultural background.
