The hou­se was well kno­wn as a hi­de­out for d­rug ad­dicts and cri­mi­nals and the youth group thoug­ht it ne­ces­sa­ry to rid the com­mu­ni­ty of the pro­blems stem­ming from it.

"We cle­a­ned in­si­de and a­round the hou­se. Our job was ma­de e­a­sier be­cau­se the­re was a big rub­bish bin next to it," co-or­di­na­tor G­co­ba­ni Ma­go­q­wa­na said.

T­his hou­se may pro­ve to be the per­fect pla­ce for the youth group to do com­mu­ni­ty u­plift­ment acti­vi­ties, in­ten­ded to help the lo­cal youth out of so­ci­al ills such as d­rug a­bu­se, u­nem­ploy­ment and teena­ge preg­nan­cies.

"We are as­king for as­sis­tan­ce from anyo­ne wil­ling to help us. The pre­mi­ses is in the midd­le of K­waNon­qa­ba and i­de­al for our pur­po­ses as it ma­kes it e­a­sier for us to play our part in hel­ping to cre­a­te a sa­fer en­vi­ron­ment and fu­tu­re for the young pe­op­le of our to­wn."

Anyo­ne who may wish to as­sist can con­tact the Si­son­ke Youth U­plift­ment Group (079 419 5259).
