A group of six public relations students from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) are on a mission to raise funds for Dance For All and they are calling for public support.

Dance For All, a non-profit organisation (NPO), offers free dance lessons to unemployed youth from various communities. They rely on sponsors, funders and donors to cover their cost.

Two of the students, Linford Benjamin and Jade Adams, say they were touched by the work done by the organisation.

Linford says when they visited the centre they were taken aback by the level of talent shown by the dancers.

However, they were saddened by the fact that the performers did not have enough financial support.

As part of their studies they started crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for the NPO. “We all know that underprivileged children do not have much to look forward to. So this (dancing) is a great thing for them. I would like to ask the public to open their hearts and support them financially.”

His classmate, Jade, shares the same sentiment. “When we visited the centre, we found a group of passionate and driven dancers. All they need is a little financial push.”
