The 702 Truck of Love with Spar

Sam Cowen takes the 702 Truck of Love to Thusong Youth Centre

Thusong Youth Centre is a community development facility which since its inception in February 1979, has impacted a large number of young people from Alexandra.

Thusong has a feeding scheme that gives local children cooked lunches daily, consisting mainly of maize meal and cabbage, but when there are donations of food from local supermarkets, there is a wider variety of treats.

Thusong is a safe haven for these vulnerable children while they are trying to find their identities during their formative years. Among the activities on offer are sewing, visual arts and public speaking as well as various forms of martial arts, gymnastics and performance arts such as dancing and poetry.

Offering classes in a number of fields such as drama and music, as well as providing the youngsters with educational resources such as a library and a computer centre to help them with their academic needs

It has a specific focus on orphans and children from families that either don’t have what is needed to provide for them, such as child-headed households or neglected children. It is an escape from the harsh and unfriendly life of many of these township children and offers them a chance to chase the dreams that they would otherwise have cast away. The 702 Truck of Love visited the feeding scheme to supplying much needed foodstuffs for Winter, but also a few other surprises.
