In collaboration with Absa, loveLife – South Africa’s largest HIV prevention programme for young people – will be giving 675 youth access to practical and theoretical entrepreneurial training. Some beneficiaries of this partnership are loveLife groundBREAKER alumni.
loveLife’s Youth Leadership Exchange Breakfast Briefing was held on 15 May 2014 at the CSIR International Convention Centre in Pretoria. Attended by representatives of various embassies, corporates and development agencies, the aim of the breakfast was to foster an interest in partnering with loveLife to give its groundBREAKERs (peer motivators and community mobilisers) the opportunity to participate in exchange programmes to various nations.
Avis recently handed over a vehicle to loveLife as part of their long standing relationship with the non-government organisation (NGO). The vehicle will be used to advance loveLife’s work in educating and creating awareness about HIV/AIDS and related diseases amongst the youth.
Unemployment, poverty, low levels of education, abuse and HIV are just some of the myriad challenges facing our youth. loveLife – a cutting edge, highly visible South African organisation with a proven evidencebased record in reducing HIV risk among youth – has put youth leadership at the forefront of addressing these social ills. loveLife’s Youth Leadership Development Programme builds young people’s social, ethical, emotional, physical, and cognitive competencies.
