Challenge

Issues such as gangsterism; violence; teenage pregnancy; HIV/AIDS; abuse of children & woman, crime & discrimination; xenophobia; unemployment & school dropout are rife in our communities. JTC believes that at the root of these issues is a disconnection with our heritage and a lack of self- esteem and identity. JTC's drama clubs aim to address self-esteem and identity through a connection with the environment, performing arts and heritage.

Solution

Children acquire communication skills, team work skills and other soft skills that they can use in all aspects of their lives by connecting to cultural heritage, indigenous folktales and performing arts process; learned life skills empowering them to achieve goals; becoming role models for their peers and younger children; increasing the value of performing arts within the community becoming an integral element of community life.

Long-Term Impact

Relationships between participants from different backgrounds & upbringing will improve creating a better understanding of different cultures & acceptance thereof. A connection to social issues, such as, alcohol & drug abuse; anti-social behavior; poverty; homelessness & crime, all very real issues in participants' everyday lives, will give a sense of recognition & cultural awareness which are important factors in the development of self and identity.
