New Love Life Trust

Project Overview

The New loveLife Trust is an NGO that campaigns with nationwide community level outreach and supports programmes that promote healthy, HIV-free living among South African teens. LoveLife believes it can shift sexual behaviour in young people towards a lower risk profile by developing a structured and attractive sport for development programme that is fully integrated into their behaviour change strategy.

LoveLife’s main purpose is to build complete young leaders for a better future, and through the activities that will be implemented at the centre, the organisation will be able to build the youth and assist them in identifying opportunities for themselves. The centre will act as a bridge between young people exiting childhood and entering adulthood, and in the process of formulating their values and identity. The programmes that loveLife offers enable young people to formulate their values and provide them with information on how to access opportunities.

All these activities will be supported and manage by our team consisting of:

How?

Participants are reach using three different approaches:

  • Participating schools within the implementation area
  • Participants visiting the Centre
  • Outreach to areas where it is difficult for the participants to reach the centre

The participants therefore included the youth of school going age as well as community members above 18years of age

The target group is youth aged 10-25, and this group is segregated according to age. 10-19-year old will be reached through activities at schools and at the centre.  The 20-25-year-old group will be targeted for skills training to provide facilitation to the 12-18-year-old group.

The beneficiaries are both females and males from Kimberley and surrounding areas. This area was declared as one of the focus areas for programmes regarding social upliftment, and faces challenges such as high incidents of HIV/AIDS, unemployment, teenage pregnancy, gender-based violence, substains and drug abuse.
