PORT Shepstone Child Welfare held a youth programme on Friday for pupils.

The event was also attended by passengers on the Logos, which was anchored off Port Shepstone.

Child welfare manager Sagree Naicker said it was especially fitting because some of the ship’s passengers spread the word of God to pupils.

Naicker said child welfare runs the annual programme with the intention of mentoring the youth.

“We have this programme every year, which is aimed at educating and mentoring the youth especially when it comes to taking responsibility in life and making sure they are aware of the challenges of finishing high school and going to university.”

Naicker said many youths leave school, stay at home and do not go to university.

“This programme educates the youth and assists them with finding varsities and colleges in order for them to further their education,” she said.

As part of the programme Logos passengers performed a drama outside for the pupils and sang in Chinese, Swedish, Taiwanese and Zulu, after which pupils were treated to snacks.

Child Welfare also presented certificates to Logos passengers, thanking them for being part of the programme.
