TiAuto’s staff wish Khayalethu Youth Centre a Merry Christmas

TiAuto’s staff wish Khayalethu Youth Centre a Merry Christmas.

The team at TiAuto helped make Christmas a little more special for Khayalethu Child and Youth Care Centre by giving its residents presents for the special day.

TiAuto Investments, the home of the best loved automotive brands and its fantastic team, invited Santa to visit the young men and boys at Khayalethu Child and Youth Care Centre recently.

Roshnee Govender, TiAuto’s resident charity driver, led the initiative to donate Christmas gifts to the centre’s young residents. Gifts, which were handed out to the boys at a Christmas party, included toys, earphones, clothing, and sweets.

“It’s so rewarding to be able to demonstrate our support for Khayalethu Youth Centre over the festive season, especially because their work has been so trying over the pandemic,” said Govender. “The centre does such a great job at helping former street children find their feet in life and go on to achieve bigger and better things.”

Khayalethu Youth Centre provides a home for 35 former street boys aged between six and twenty-one. They aim to prepare these boys physically, emotionally, and intellectually to become responsible, functioning members of society.

The boys are taken off the streets, away from a life of crime, abuse, and poverty, and given another chance to reach their potential. Wherever possible, they are enrolled for further education, skills courses or learnerships, and are supported in finding employment.

“Everyone at TiAuto would like to give a big thank you to Roshnee for her great work at supporting a very deserving cause,” said Alex Taplin, CEO of TiAuto Investments.
