Youth motivated at Pollsmoor

Lewies Davids, acting chaplain in the development and spiritual care unit for the Department of Correctional Services, and spiritual and moral development co-ordinator Davie Carelse, pat Caleb Cloete, from Lavender Hill, on the back. With them is Faldelah Mackenzie, director of Noorani Assidique Foundation (NASF), based in Westgate.

A Westgate-based foundation in collaboration with the Department of Correctional Services and other community youth service providers hosted a crime prevention programme for youth at Pollsmoor Management area recreational hall, in Tokai, on Thursday June 16.

Noorani Assidique Foundation (NASF), focuses on community outreach, feeding schemes and renders a holistic programme in prison.

Youth were encouraged to get involved in sport and to further their learning opportunities, instead of joining gangs and misusing drugs and alcohol.

Rugby hero O’Neal Daniels, who hails from Rocklands, did a tag rugby demonstration and shared his story, from being shot at, to representing South Africa in the international tag rugby series in Ireland in January.

NASF director Faldelah Mackenzie thanked Westgate mall businesses for their support and sponsorship.
