YOUNGSTERS of the Khayalethu Youth Centre are in high spirits thanks to a R35 000 donation by Paarl Coldset Port Elizabeth, which forms part of the Coldset printing division of Novus Holdings.

The Corporate Social Investment (CSI) initiative aims to give ‘a hand up, not a hand-out’ to its beneficiaries by empowering them to grow independently.

The Kayelethu Youth Centre instils a sense of pride in boys formerly living on the streets by helping them to aim high and achieve their goals. Khayalethu means “our home” and that is precisely what the Centre provides for the 35 boys aged between 6 and 21 living there.

The financial boost from Paarl Coldset Port Elizabeth will be used to continue their good work. “No person should be left on the streets and it gives us great joy to know that we can help,” said Braam Keyser, General Manager at Paarl Coldset Port Elizabeth.

“The donated funds will be used to continue encouraging these youngsters through sports and adventure-based education that brings them together, providing them with a sense of belonging,” said Keyser.
