Generation for Change, an underprivileged group from Vrygrond that has the passion to dance, just got a boost.

The gear was donated by another dance group from Germany called All for All that has been helping them for years.

Mymoena Scholtz, director of Where Rainbows Meet, says the group from Germany comes to the foundation every three years.

“This year they spoiled our dance group and one of our soccer groups with a full set. Shoes, T-shirts, takkies, towels, water bottles,” she says.

Scholtz says they were blown away by the donation.

“As a foundation we really try our best to support all our groups but it is very challenging when it is not funded. None of our programmes are funded and it is a battle to buy any form of resources for the groups, like the dance gear they ­received.

“The joy on our youth’s faces was very overwhelming and very emotional for me. They were so excited about the takkies and the dance outfits, it was just an emotional feeling and very much appreciated by all of us.

“We value the support from All 4 All youth group – they work very hard in raising funds in order to make a difference in the lives of our communities,” she says.

The foundation runs a lot of other programmes and they appreciate any support they get. Scholtz says it should be about building each other and those that can help should come forward.

“It is not about race, colour or creed or where you come from. It is about humanity and building our society and making sure that we integrate our youth and show them the best of both worlds. It was very hard for the youth of Germany to see the reality, especially the suffering of the children, but doing what they did for the dance and soccer group really had a positive impact on the youth. It shows that there are people that care and they are interested in the wellbeing of others. Our dance group was really happy,” says Scholtz.
