MRP Foundation Celebrates with Zilungisele Choir and Gangs of Ballet

8 June 2016 Join the MRP Foundation in celebrating our amazing journey over the past decade at an evening of musical celebrations with performances by Gangs of Ballet and the Zilungisele Primary School choir.

 


The MRP Foundation is celebrating their incredible milestones we’ve achieved over our ten year journey with an evening of musical celebrations at The Barnyard Theatre on 20 June 2016 at 6pm.

As a youth development organisation the MRP Foundation dreams of a South Africa where young people break the cycle of poverty and inequality by unlocking tomorrow’s potential. Since the Non-Profit started their journey over a decade ago their programmes have impacted and empowered tens of thousands of young people from low income communities within South Africa.

 

To mark the momentous occasion friends, partners, staff and beneficiaries of the MRP Foundation will be treated to a fun-filled performance by the award winning band, Gangs of Ballet, accompanied by the inspiring Zilungisele Primary School choir.

Like the evening itself, both performances hold special significance. The Durban musos, Gangs of Ballet, are MRP Foundation ambassadors and the Zilungisele Primary School choir are part of the MRP Foundation Schools Programme.

 

"We are so proud to be associated with the MRP Foundation and the incredible work they do with the youth of our country. Their programmes not only foster hope but develop skills for success,” said Josh Klynsmith, one of the members of Gangs of Ballet.
 

Education is one of the key focuses of the MRP Foundation and for the past five years the MRP Foundation Schools Programme has been implemented in five schools in rural Kwa-Dukuza, KZN, including Zilungisele Primary School, and aims to create a holistic environment in schools where children can identify and unlock and develop their talents.

 

The MRP Foundation’s second programme, Jump Start, focuses on equipping youth for employment opportunities in the retail sector and its value chain by developing both soft and hard skills. To date over over 10,000 young unemployed matriculants have completed training and over 4000 have found job placements.

 

With the purpose of the evening being to celebrate the achievements of the MRP Foundation over the past decade the event is also a fundraising opportunity and ticket sales are R200 each.
