YOUTH TO BENEFIT FROM DRIVING PROGRAMME

Precious Gumede | 30 September 2023


The programme will run in intervals, starting with a group of 10.


A non-profit based in Bhoboyi, near Murchison in partnership with three local business owners from Port Shepstone is running a free driving programme aimed at empowering individuals.


The founder of Linda Legacy Foundation, Sthembile Linda said the programme will assist individuals who don’t have driver’s licences.


“My partners and I saw that many of our youth are faced with unemployment, and a stumbling block among others is that they don’t have a driver’s licence. We decided to be the change we wanted to see.”

Linda along with Bhekani Mbambo of B&H Logistics and Towing, Muhle Ronald Mbili from Mfanomuhle Driving School, Dumisani Dubaza Maluleka, a community liaison officer from Bhoboyi and Themba Tshabalala from A&T Busy Corner decided to be the solution makers.


She said the programme will run in intervals, starting with a group of 10.


“The beneficiaries will start with a learner’s licence course, on passing the test they will start driving lessons until they acquire their driver’s licence,” Linda added.


All are encouraged to apply. “We want individuals who are hungry for success and are focused on changing their own lives.”


Applicants must be above 18 and have completed matric. “We want them to share their story as to how the licence will impact their life.”


Applications are open and will close on Friday, October 6. Email lindalegacyfoundation@gmail.com
