You For Youth

Personal message

WHO ARE WE?

Marimba Jam is a social enterprise that teaches the African marimba to youth all over Cape Town. Our main aim is to bridge the gap of inequality between the youth in our country and bring children together, no matter their background.

YOU FOR YOUTH

We created the You For Youth campaign, through our registered NPO Marimba Jam Cares, last year after noticing that many children did not have access to online learning and therefore, without school, weren't able to tap into their creative sides.

Our campaign started by donating 100 boxes filled with creative tools like stationery, art supplies,  colouring books, etc. to various youth care homes. 

This year we saw how the pandemic left our most vulnerable communities devastated, which is why with the help of Siyakhula (NPO),  we have decided to give back this Women’s Day. 

In line with our motto, "Finding harmony in community", we will be distributing care boxes to child and youth care centres for girls aged 13-18 years old. This year’s beneficiaries are YWISE, St Michael’s Youth and Childcare Centre and Ons Plek. Each box will contain feminine hygiene products, notebooks, cosmetic products and toiletries.

WHY DONATE?

As we commemorate Women’s Day it is important to remember the vulnerability of young girls, especially in light of the pandemic. We have all experienced the toll the pandemic has placed on our mental health and we want to give these young girls something that will boost their self-esteem and make them feel good. These boxes are not just items but a chance to give them dignity and put a smile on their faces. No one should need to go without basic necessities, which is why it is important for us to give back this Women’s Day.  

Spread joy to a young girl this Women’s Day! 

(If you'd like to submit a personalized note for a child in your box, please email it to [email protected] along with the name you used to make your donation).

1 box = R150 (any contribution is greatly appreciated).

 

All funds will go towards buying boxes, reusable cotton masks, feminine hygiene products, notebooks, personal care items, toiletries, etc.

Marimba Jam

Marimba Jam  Logo

MARIMBA JAM originally sprung from an initiative that aimed to break the socio-economic barriers that divide the South African youth, through African Marimba playing.
This initiative aimed to give learners a means of expression through rhythm and music.
It aimed to promote cultural and social harmony.

Now, MARIMBA JAM is a company that strives to continue to enrich students with the energy and enjoyment of Marimba music.

Currently teaching over 350 school learners in Cape Town as well as having a professional MARIMBA JAM PERFORMING BAND, MARIMBA JAM has become a thriving and dynamic organisation!
