We sent out a call to all South Africans to be united in song as part of our Anthem Project. Several students across the country heeded the call and brought the dream to fruition. We’re loving the submissions that have been uploaded thus far and would like to encourage more schools to join in and show their pride for our beautiful country by sharing their renditions of the national anthem.
By submitting your video, you could win a chance to donate a share of R1 million in cash and prizes to your charity of choice. These are some of the charities that have been nominated so far:
Deaf Federation of South Africa
Founded in 1929, DeafSA acts as the national research, information and community action organisation on behalf of South Africans that are culturally and linguistically Deaf, hard of hearing or Deafblind.
Prompted by the desire to bring meaningful change to vulnerable and underprivileged communities, True North advocates for Early Childhood Development (ECD) and believes in setting a new standard for the education, nurture and holistic development of pre-school children and their caregivers.
Established in 2004, Vision AfriKa supports youth in their process of personal growth and development through providing a psychosocial-support system to youth from underserved communities.
