The Seoding Community Centre in Kuruman has been given a boost to continue giving hope to underprivileged members of society.

A fresh coat of paint was given to the centre’s facilities: the Tlotlanang centre for the disabled, the Kitlanang Bagodi centre for the elderly and the youth centre.

The painting of the buildings was the initiative of Coca-Cola Beverages South Africa (CCBSA) as part of its commitment to uplift the communities in which it operates.

Representatives of the CCBSA did the work on 5 May.

According to Caroline Nyahuye, regional communications specialist (inland), interior and exterior painting of the three centres were done, and four shelves, desktop counters and benches were also donated.

“We partnered with our colleagues from the Department of Social Development, who volunteered 19 of their em­ployees to assist in the day’s activities,” said Nyahuye.

The Seoding Community Development Forum, which runs the centre, was formed to facilitate the implementation of sustainable projects and programmes aimed at addressing social ills.

The forum champions the rights of the most vulnerable people, like those living with disabilities and the elderly.

The centre has partnered with the Department of Labour, which regularly conducts CV writing workshops, hones job-hunting skills, presents back to school programmes and equips matrics with information on learnerships, bursaries and other opportunities.

The centre also has committed volunteers who teach basic computer skills and stimulate educational conversations.
