They are ten thousand of youth in South Africa with diplomas and degrees that are not able to find work in the field of study we believe our sport activities could be the key to unlocking potential in the township as a bonus it could open up another career path for many youth. if not at least they have an opportunity to share their view to part in play which are relevant to their experience and be part of health activities
Creativity is the key to the development we established art department to teach young stars how to use poetry,music,dance and drama to tell their stories .we believe poore communities focused on survival that the is a little room for youth to learn how to express them selves. We have moral lesson for the younger members ,but also encourage them to write in English or Xhosa and find the new ways to express themselves many of the poems and plays have real life to feel to them because they tend to deal with issues .we believe when you write or sing you are expressing yourself .
A little self expression goes long way reckons Dunoon a 25 years old believes teaching the youth to share their experience in a creativity way is key to their development.
This way he established the Masabelane foundation which teaches young stars how to use poetry, music, dancing and drama to tell their stories. he believes poorer communities focused on survival that there is a little room for youth to learn how to express themselves he then established a day care facility but he shut down it because he wanted to focus on performing art .and use the small shack to practise if they are so inclined he has too draw up a scheduled to accommodated 30 youth in a small shack.
The foundation plays have morals lesson for the younger members, but also encourage them to write in English or Xhosa and find the new ways to express themselves, many of the poems and plays have real life feel to them because they tend to deal with issues facing the youth today. He believes when you write or sing you are expressing yourself. he have love of soccer he did not expect things to turn out this way to become as the founder of art foundation He then took part in a play organised by an NGO and felt that he wanted to teach children about the important of the performing art
He always ask me that I can got to school finish matric and even become and doctor, but what if you were talented writer or an actor ? he feels the youngest he teaches would benefit from more options outside of the accepted norm presently .he encouraged children to finish school attend institution and hopeful find the job to escape poverty .he even ask school reports in each term to see how kids do at school and visit us as parent to check how children coping at home with their families
He said there ten thousand of youth in South Africa with diplomas and degrees who are not able to find work in their field of study he .believe the foundation extra curricular activities could be the key to unlocking potential in the township as a bonus it could open up another career path for many youth if not at least they have an opportunity to share their view to take part in play which are relevant to their experience and be part of healthy activities
He believes art is important that doesn't mean children should ignore their school work even he says it is important that children give them selves as many opportunities as possible which means completing school but Also sharing knowledge and skills with others .
He believes the community can fight poverty if it pools its resources and supports its youth some of them can become as professional actors, dancers, musicians and dancers. So that can reduce poverty at their families
He want to help the poor community and needy person including the promotion of community based project relating to self help empowerment, help the communities and under school age going by providing food parcels, school uniform stationary so that they must not drop out at school by unnecessary things because he believes he can rise up leaders and world changers through performing art as he believe creativity is the key to development.
He start the foundation with nothing not even have the money to buy the group uniform. But nothing change him to achieve the dream he then survive with out have any donation or funds. But he keep carry on with a hope and the foundation is stronger they won 3 trophy. two from councillor music awards and one from Dunoon arts festival as the best dancer and music group he achieve so much even our kids are doing well at school we never have any query from their teachers. Saying our kids ignore their school work I am so proud of him even here at home my kids do their duties before they go to the practice.
When a person tries to help communities we have doubts about them because we see so many people struggle to achieve their dreams. Because of no support but Mr Kaspoti nothing stops him to achieve so much in this foundation he established. we ask our selves where will end up but today this foundation is invited to the big Events such as awards, theatres, and churches to perform what is surprising me that he did not charge any cent for performances. so he wanted to expose the kids and make them busy in the community and kids to be nominated by the big and professional groups so that they can achieve their dreams and become professional .Go oversees make the foundation, community and parents proud .He then open the bible study every Saturday he ask the pastor to come and read the bible for Children to make them to understand the word of censoredat their young age.
He insure that all children are equal and everyone needs and interest are equal are catered for. Providing the different age groups even thou teenagers wants the special attention but he knows how to control them .he agree and support each other statement .even when there is conflict he stay calm and listen he treat them fairly.
He opens discussions try to get everyone together to talk about their expectation and worries regularly. And he understands that talking openly is the best way to solve the children.
He makes sure that all the children understand that they can't always go out in the performance things can't go their in their way.
