Young people help rid KwaNonqaba of social ills
The Sisonke Youth Upliftment group decided to clean up a house next to Magaba's Créche in KwaNonqaba as part of their quest to implement their vision and mission.
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).
The Sisonke Youth Development group members cleaned a property. Now they hope to use it as a base for their upliftment programmes.
The young people, who are saying no to social ills such as drug abuse, criminality and teenage pregnancies, this past weekend cleaned up what was a drug den next to a créche in KwaNonqaba.
