Gug’s wall of hope seeks support

2017-07-13 06:00

The Gugulethu Youth Development Council has embarked on a mission to turn an undeveloped piece of land to build a wall of hope.

Young people are to decorate the wall with creative arts and also express their challenges as well as messages of hope.

According to one of the organisers, Xolile Ndzoyi, the meaning of this exhibition is to define the essence of Gugulethu, inspire heritage and leave a legacy.

“The initiative will also propel the youth to restore faith in finding methods to complete actions using their intellect and creative abilities.

To also speak for the people of Gugulethu and be a welcoming tribute to all walks of humanity,” he said.

He said that the wall will contain a map with directions to other landmarks in Gugulethu.

“It will also have a brief history of Gugulethu, a small garden with a fountain. This can benefit the visitors to the Wall of Hope because it will be a calming environment, which will in turn make it a space where the local youth can visit to seek inspiration,” he said,

He also added that there will also be free WiFi connection for all guests. But for all this to happen GYDC need locals to sign a petition to make it a reality.
