Summary

The Ntonga Music School is striving to empower the people of Gugulethu by creating positive opportunities for their community, as well as foster a greater connection to the rest of the world through the sharing of their music. The school is working to connect South Africans beyond the boundaries of Gugulethu; it is a source of pride and inspiration not only for the township, but also for the country.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Like many of the townships formed during South Africa's government-imposed Apartheid that lasted from 1948 to 1994, Gugulethu is a community in need of assistance and inspiration. South Africans are still striving to repair the damage and injustice created during Apartheid. The youth of Gugulethu face serious challenges in their community every day; drug use and violent crime, HIV rates reported at nearly 30%, and low graduation rates, to name a few.

How will this project solve this problem?

Tuition-free classes are available to all children who want to learn music. PFCF funded the building of the school, provides the teachers' salaries, musical instruments, and outreach opportunities through technology and community performances. The school is lead by a dedicated staff of music instructors and trained personnel who understand the unique challenges their students face and offer compassion, guidance, and creative inspiration. The school also serves as community center in Gugulethu.
