Fundraising to facilitate a UK choir tour for the children of Sithobelumthetho Primary School from the Madadeni Township, South Africa.
About the project
Project Zulu have arranged for 26 children to fly from their township in Madadeni, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa to complete a 3 week tour of the UK.
The children form an incredible Zulu Choir who are given the opportunity to showcase their inspiring musical talent throughout the UK. During their 3 week tour the children will
- live with host families whilst in Bristol
- perform at a variety of concert venues across the UK
- visit 14 schools to share their muscial talents
- busk in various towns and cities around the UK
- spend a day in a recording studio making an album to sell.
The children live in small shacks and basic brick houses and their school lacks the basic facilities that UK school children enjoy, such as secure roofs and windows, technology or learning resources. Money raised from the children performances and busking will be sent straight back to Sithobelumthetho Primary School to fund the building of 2 new classrooms which will help reduce the current pupil-teacher ratio of 50:1.
In order for their tour to go ahead Project Zulu rely on the good will of many organisations to offer free facilities such as accommodation, activites, meals and much more. However there are some costs that are simply unavoidable.
The Project Zulu team have so far raised £20,000 to facilitate the tour however we're still short of our total by £2,000.
By raising this money prior to the choir arriving it means that as soon as the children land in the UK, every penny they make is theirs to take back to their school.
