In summary, the project trained a total of 35 youth in Fork Music & Dance of which 10 were females and 25 males. All trainees fell within the age bracket of 12 and 27 years. The social class of all beneficiaries can be described as being in dire need of the training offered.

The new segment of the project which got a boosting after joining the GlobalGiving started in October 2012 and ended February 2013. Training was exercised three times in a week with each session held two hours per day. Each session accommodated six (6) people who also benefited from various practice periods.

2 out of every 3 beneficiary interviewed expressed satisfaction and commended the training especially for the new costumes, new and comfortable drums and the way and manner instructors impacted the needed knowledge in a professional manner and setting. In conclusion a thousand thanks to the GlobalGiving Team, trainers and importantly all those whose circumstance allowed contributions both in-kind and cash.
