Nelson Mandela Community Centre (Chatsworth)
Betting Entertainment Technologies (B.E.T.)
The community centre was first opened in 2003 in the wake of a shooting in the year 2000 that resulted in the deaths of 13 local children.
The centre’s goal is to offer young people within the community a safe haven where they can spend their time in order to avoid tragedies like these.
They work with 130 schools from the Chatsworth, Lamontville, Queensburgh, Wentworth and KwaMashu areas.
The Nelson Mandela Centre is open seven days a week and is completely run by volunteers.
They offer activities like volleyball, table tennis, chess, boxing, badminton and a full gym.
They are proud of the fact that some of their youngsters have excelled so much in table tennis and chess that they’ve represented South Africa!
The centre also addresses the need of unemployment in that they offer skills development programmes for those who are unemployed where they introduce young people to new skills.
B.E.T. chose to support them by donating 20 computer monitors, 20 keyboards, 15 UPS, raters, 20 powerpacks to help back up their work and one main frame box.
This will be used to create a computer lab that will allow children to learn computer skills that will stand them in good stead into the future.
