The schools road show that I started with a close friend of mine at the beginning of the year is kicking off so well. The team is called “Dream Factory” and the vision and mission is simply to ignite the forgotten dreams in the hearts of our youth.
It’s been an amazing journey thus far. What we do is very simple we do a 2 man play where we depict a typical situation of a young girl who lives in poverty and her mom is an alcoholic her father is absent, in the end the girl finds a way to make her dreams a reality.
It’s a super inspirational play, and at the end we do a very lively Hip Hop performance as well. The most amazing thing for me has been to see Young people taking the words we give them and running with them, and making their dreams come true now, even if its through enrolling in an activity that they hope to excel in one day.
In the first half of the year, we managed to do the road show in 14 schools in the Western Cape. We are in the second half of the year now and we have already attended 4 schools. Hopefully we have transformed some young people’s lives. We hope to take this road show national, and maybe one day, international.
Check out some pics of some of the schools I have attended.
