The rehab centre took 15 addicts for two months and the municipality paid for refreshments, the venue and park homes, and the organisation had to cover the other expenses.
“We achieved a lot during those years. We were nominated at the Mayoral­ awards in 2012 and won the Community Development award. We won again in the same category in 2014.
“The EPWP was nominated on national level in 2014 under the Community Development category. We were motivated and wanted to help more addicts, however, in 2014 we had to shut down after municipality could no longer fund us.”


“Our aim for the youth centre is to have a place where we can motivate those did not finish school.
“The centre offers educational programmes - basic­ computer skills, journalism NQF level 5 and security guard and cashier training. We also have a multimedia department, which has a recording studio.”
The facilitators and trainers are Seta­-accredited.
