PILOT PROJECT: The Awakening the brainchild of Norman Jacobs

Organisers say this will not be a once-off event, and that Bonteheuwel is the pilot project.

The Awakening is the brainchild of Norman Jacobs.

“We endeavour to spearhead more programmes and projects that would set the foundation for young people to become involved in their communities,” he explains.

“We aim to create opportunities for young people who are less privileged. The Awakening will kickstart all of this.

“It is no secret what is happening to our youth on the streets daily gangsterism, drugs and prostitution, among others. The reality is sad, but we can’t sit back and accept this as normal.”

Stiek uit at Rosewood Primary in Bontas at 6pm.
