Youth With Vision Gospel Project, a music group formed by youth from all corners of Khayelitsha is growing from strength to strength, notwithstanding the challenges.

Formed in 2002, today it boasts having wonthe heart and minds of all they have come acroos or performed in front of.

Their brand of music is what moves the souls of its audience.

Clapping and tapping is their style of doing things.

Mzimazi Mpofu, organiser, said the formation of the group has warmed the hearts of many in Khayelitsha.

“Most people in the province did not know our music when we started, but now some are following us. We do music shows every now and then in the area and some residents come and support us,” Mpofu said.

The group consists of about 50 youngsters and adults ranging from the ages of 14 to 35 years, all sourced from the area.

Although most of the members confess the Christian faith, the group is not aligned to any particular church.

Not only is their core business entertainment, they are also involved in community upliftment programmes.

They are also known for hosting HIV/Aids workshops, crime awareness campaigns and also encourage home gardening andf farming.

“We encourage youth to get involved in farming as a way to fight poverty,” he added.

Mpofu also said they are planning to start a soup kitchen and after school-care programmes. Mpofu said the choir is facing some challenges such as lack of facilities, which inconveniences them whenever church times clash with practice times.

He also appealed to anyone interested in helping the group to come forward.

The group is registered as Non Profit Organisation (NPO).

They do not have a recorded album yet.

Catch them at Nkosinathi Creche, in Harare, 34 Section, on Sunday for their next show.

The show starts at 1pm to 7pm and tickets fsell at the door at R20

How much food do you need to concentrate?

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
