About the project

The challenge we want to master is to solve social problems in our community through dance

The youth in Tembisa are facing a battery of social ills, like drugs and alcohol abuse, peer pressure and petty crime, teenage pregnancy. Theres lack of art centres and extra mural activities at schools which leaves the young loitering this almost makes the streets seem treacherous.

To create a positive environment for youngsters.

The project is a movement for youth lead by youth for young people who are excluded from learning due to poverty, political unrest, discrimination or cultural bias. This is led by young people with the belief in power of social connectivity and a passion to drive change.

“FIRE FROM THE HEART”- the most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.

Neo Sebete-Ida co-founder.
