Help for unemployed youth

Local non-profit organisation Kraailove Community Development seeks to empower 10 unemployed Kraaifontein youth by helping them obtain their driver’s licenses through the Drive to Success initiative.

The initiative will ensure the beneficiaries receive the necessary support to first obtain their learner’s licenses and undergoing driving lessons to ensure they are well-equiped for their driving exam.

All this will be free of charge, the organisation’s Kwayo Louw says.

“The main reason behind this project is to help our youth within different communities create better opportunities for themselves and shifting their attention to positive activities,” Louw says.

The initiative will further assist the beneficiaries in their quest to find employment.

“We want to be there for them from the beginning until the end.”

If all goes well, Louw says, the pilot project will kick off next month.

“We are currently discussing the finer details of how this project will be managed, taking into account lockdown regulations.

“We are also in pursuit of organisations that are willing to partner with us on this.”

Louw says the organisation is determined to get this project running.

“We want to see this becoming a success so that our youth can feel empowered.

“If it means that we have to use money from our own pockets, then so be it.”

He says anyone from anywhere in Kraaifontein between the ages of 18 and 40 will be considered for the programme.
