The Where Rainbows Meet training and development foundation in Vrygrond celebrated Youth Day through arts this year.

The event was attended by 2000 youngsters from Vrygrond and surrounding areas such as Overcome Heights, Lavender Hill, Montague Village, Hill View, Seawinds, Steenberg, Cafda, Grassy Park, Ocean View, Khayelitsha, Nyanga and Gugulethu.

They participated in performing arts such as dancing, singing, drama, poetry as well as motivational talks on the importance of this day, to inspire one another to continue bringing about positive social change.

The event was also used to raise awareness of how important the youth are and to give them a platform to be free and express themselves through their talents and performances.

Food, refreshments and snacks were handed out to the community of Vrygrond and surrounding areas as part of the event.
