Youth for Christ Kwa-Zulu Natal (YFC/KZN) in partnership with AFM House of Glory youth worked as shadow waiters and waitresses at the El Sombrero Spur in Scottsville on Wednesday, 29 May 2019.
YFC/KZN Marketing and Communications Officer, Sonti Magota said the organization took part in this event with the aim of gaining knowledge and putting themselves in the shoes of waiters and waitresses. “As an organization that works closely with young people and most of the waiters/waitress are young people, we wanted to gain the knowledge of what their job entails”, said Magota. She added that the organization also saw a fundraising opportunity for one of their projects. “By participating in this shadow shift, the organization received 15% of the turnover that El Sombrero Spur made between 16:00pm and 20:00pm, which amounted to R2268.00”, explained Magota.
The El Sombrero Spur Director, John Freeguard said he is excited to work with organizations that makes a positive impact in the lives of young people and children. “Giving hope to all those who are in need is our collective responsibility. I am excited to partner with YFC/KZN in making a difference in various communities”, said Freeguard.
