Kwanda: The First Ever Community Makeover TV Show

Finally, I'm able to chat about the new project that I'm currently developing a site for. As I said, it's a reality TV programme that aims to make a difference in communities across South Africa.

Anyhoo, I'll let the Soul City Institute tell you about it through a media invitation that was sent out today.
...............................................................................................................................................................

Soul City and the Department of Social Development bring you Kwanda, the first ever community makeover TV show

Imagine if hundreds of volunteers all over the country from the Eastern Cape to Limpopo, began working together to make a better life for themselves.

What difference could they make? Could they make sure that children are not going hungry? Could they reduce violent crime that causes so much pain and damage in our lives? Could they make their communities look better, work better and feel better?

Please join us at the media launch of a groundbreaking nationwide community development project.

Find out more about Kwanda – Communities with Soul, which is to be broadcast on SABC 1 from Wednesday, 2 September 2009.

Honorable Minister of Social Development, Ms Edna Molewa will give the keynote address.

Meet the people making a difference in their communities, the Soul City Institute and production teams. See a sneak preview of the first episode and be inspired by real reality television!

Date: Tuesday, 25 August 2009
Time: 10h00 for 10h30 (please see detailed programme below) - stay for lunch
Venue: Royal Ballroom at the Park Hyatt Hotel, 191 Oxford Road, Rosebank

Hey Nafisa! I'm OK. Working hard as usual, but recently went away for a long weekend, so not so tired. Ja, I've also seen your comments and follow you on twitter.

I hope you're well?

Damaria,

I've just published your KWANDA guest post on www.riehlife.com.

Love it!

And, the concept we have often discussed that Africa must help itself in development for lasting peace and social justice.
