GOVERNMENT and community structures must work together to support efforts that are aimed at developing young people.

This was said by Kouga Executive Mayor Elza van Lingen during a hand-over ceremony of a soccer kit to the Patensie Football Club last week.

The kit was sponsored by citrus company Endulini Fruits.

“We have a number of challenges when it comes to our youth. If we do not find sponsors to help us with projects for young people, we will have an even bigger problem,” said Van Lingen.

The Mayor said it was every parent’s desire that their children would grow up to live better lives than what their parents had.

She thanked both the ward councillor, Amos Mabukane, and the sponsors for their contributions in making sure that young people in the area were not idle.

“We live in these little towns and there are only so many people who can help,” she said.

Van Lingen encouraged the team and everyone in attendance, including ward committee members, to make use of information outlets such as libraries to empower themselves with information and to learn of opportunities.

Patensie Football Club Team Manager Bonisile Khaza thanked the Mayor and the ward councillor for the gesture.

“Though we have many challenges, it is good to know that someone out there is watching all the efforts we are making in keeping ourselves busy with something as constructive as sport,” he said.

The Patensie side is currently lying fourth in the second tier of the premier division of Kouga.
