Music should be for everyone, but the reality is that this is not the case for a huge section of our community. The Macassar region, which includes the following schools, Macassar Primary, Firgrove Primary and Oklahoma Primary, are schools where learners derives from a high poverty setting and previously disadvantaged background. The teachers and headmasters of these schools are wonderful people and are welcoming the Musaic team to teach their children. Our main focus will be to establish choirs, marimba bands and drumming circles at these schools. We believe music builds bridges and gives people a sense of pride and dignity.
To sustain this project, any donations or sponsorships would be greatly appreciated. We are in the process of registering as an NPO.
How you can get involved:
Our immediate need to start this project is the following:
- purchasing a set of marimbas
- purchasing djembe drums
- a custom-made trailer for transporting the instruments to the various schools
We would be grateful for any support. If anybody wants to make a donation, please contact us.
