Concert for children with special needs

Tanja Bause
The organisation We Do Special, which was founded early this year in Maltahöhe by Susanne Berchtold, is coming to Windhoek to collect money.
“We are an organisation that wants to provide training to children and young people with special needs. For the people who now have little or no hope of work, we want to offer vocational training for two or three years in different areas such as agriculture, livestock, kitchen and household, metalwork, carpentry and computer science, with the hope that they can then find a job somewhere and be independent.”
In light of this, the a cappella group The Spirit performs at the NG Church in Windhoek East from 18:30 tomorrow.
Entry is free, but a donation for We Do Special is welcome.
“We will be selling plates of ‘braaivleis’ and refreshments from 17:30,” she said.
The Spirit is an a cappella group consisting of seven young men who also specialise in marimbas and jazz.
“All the men are all involved in the project. For example, they are the electrician, the builder, the carpenter and the man who looks after the vegetable garden. They have already toured in Germany with their previous band. They came to me and said that they wanted to start a new group to raise money for We Do Special. They are all passionate and want to make a change in the lives of the children. They want to draw attention to the project. They have already released a CD and regularly perform for fundraisers.
“Please come and support us so that next year we can take in, help and train more children with special needs. For more details contact 081 208 9528.” – [email protected]
