The Artreach Programme
Reaching out with Arts in Mpumalanga….
Artreach is a project that reaches out to previously disadvantaged communities in the art of music.
The project builds capacity with teachers and learners to practice music, develop talent and promote the benefits of the arts.
Talent identification and access to Art, Music & Drama to provide the foundations
necessary for the holistic development of a child.
Artreach is reaching out to disadvantaged communities with the arts to create opportunity and awareness. With access to an excellent Music Academy and skilled teachers Artreach is conducting training sessions with groups of learners selected from target school to participate in Djembe, Marimba and choir training. Learners are transported to Artreach at Penryn College once a week to undertake lessons. Coaches also travel to communities to give lessons. Artreach creates an opportunity for learners to partake in performances and is proud to expose learners to a world of music, drama and art.
Penreach implemented the Sportreach programme in 2017 to promote school-based
sport at under resourced schools in disadvantaged communities through a Coach the Coach programme.
The programme allows community schools access to sporting facilities not currently available to them and is considered a community empowerment programme.

“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to unite in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination.”
