THIBELLA. – Third-year students of the University of the Free State’s (UFS) Qwaqwa Campus recently took a tour to the Qwaqwa loveLife Youth Centre at the Thibella Village in Tsheseng, Qwaqwa, to interact with the community.

According to Dr Dipane Hlalele, the assistant dean: Faculty of Education at the UFS, the tour was aimed at educating the community about the opportunities that were available for them at the university.

“These are the people who will be going back to the community to serve them after graduating.

“We brought them to the loveLife Centre to meet loveLife’s volunteers with the aim of making them aware of how important it is to volunteer their services to their respective communities.

“The UFS Qwaqwa Campus has initiated that all the first-year students registering for 2016 will not pay registration fees. This is an opportunity that our people should not let slip,” Hlalele said.

Tshidiso Motaung, the centre manager, said they were happy to have visitors from the university as they hardly ever get the opportunity to meet them face-to face.

“These are the people we need the most. They will be leading people in the work field once they graduate. They are respected and they influence many lives.

“It is therefore important to tell them about HIV/Aids and gender-based violence,” Motaung said
