Volkswagen South Africa, chairperson Hubert Waltl, says he believes the soon-to-be-built loveLife Youth Centre in Uitenhage will be to the benefit of youth in the area. Waltl turned the first sod this week at the site of the planned loveLife centre in KwaNobuhle in Uitenhage.
The sod turning was also attended by Nelson Mandela Bay mayor, Zanoxolo Wayile. The R20m loveLife Youth Centre aims to make a meaningful impact in the lives of the youth of the Uitenhage area. It will offer young people specialised counselling services and also provide support to teenagers and parents.
“Additionally, it will have outreach programmes covering nearly 20000 young people annually in the 20 surrounding schools,” said Waltl. The centre was Volkswagen SA”s World Cup legacy project, he said.
