To this end we registered the AWCA (amaWolseley Cultural Association NPO as without this vehicle we would be unable to access the financial assistance in order to achieve our dreams. After a lot of work, we finally managed to get a grant from the Department of Arts and Culture at the end of 2015 to allow us to put plans in place and we are very excited to open the school last evening with 9 new band members, being taught by the existing band members.
Our plans for the futre involve plans to start an African dancing group and a drumming circle. These activities will involve more youth on a smaller budget an we intend to increase the children benefiting from the school to 50 by the end of 2016. Our other main drive is to get a vehicle to transport the members to and from gigs. Until now we have relied on our private vehicle and it is simply not big enough any more and safety restrictions do not make it legal.
Thank you to all our supporters and we look forward to updating you of our activities.
