This concert brings to fruition the sixth consecutive year of the ‘Sounds of Celebration’ project in which NGO Education Africa has collaborated with Sydenham Shul to uplift disadvantaged communities around Gauteng. The most recent of Education Africa’s 9 grassroots projects, the establishment of Marimba Hubs across Gauteng’s communities is amongst their most inspiring.
Education Africa has opened up 12 Marimba Hubs in and around Gauteng. These Marimba Hubs may be found in Alexandra, Soweto, Daveyton, Reiger Park, Etwatwa, Bertrams, Lenasia and Eden Park and Hammanskraal. Proceeds of this year’s funding will open 3 more hubs while continuing to sustain and expand the existing Hubs.
We will be featuring 3 bands with disabilities including the Dominican School for the Deaf in Hammanskraal, Jiswa Training Centre in Lenasia for severely intellectually disabled children (S.I.D.) and MC Kharbai Special School in Lenasia for mildly intellectually disabled and deaf children (M.I.D.).
