What does your company do?

The company has a program, which identifies exceptional singing talent through school in the Katlehong, Ekurhuleni area. Once identified, the pupils are trained through all music disciplines. The talent is then presented to the community and stakeholders through our annual concert. It also focuses on identifying talent from learners with disability and to ensure that they are developed theoretically and practically. Assist the learners for the registration of musical exams. We provide a daily feeding scheme for the learners, as the programme happens after school. Assist the youth with the registration for tertiary institution, and if funds are available we pay for the registration fee.

What is your biggest success?

To see the same learners, graduating from the program and progress to tertiary institutions. Having to see the learner independently performing on international stages. Financial stability for the NPO, through performance. Performing with Sibongile Khumalo in the presence of former president Thabo Mbeki, which opened opportunities for the NPO Performing at the DSTV Food Festival for thousands of people, FNB Women breakfast. Uniform for the learners, as it an issue when we have to go to events/ performance.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

It would definitely have to be funding as we are self funded and rely solely on performances that we make. We do not have enough musical instruments to recruit more learners (youth). No skills development for the staff and learners. We lack training on how to market the NPO We do not have transport We do not have a website Provide different skills from music
