The Kirstenbosch RC recently hosted an Expo of Musical talent with an Entrepreneurial emphasis at Pollsmoor Prison. 

The Cape Town Male Voice Choir and the Dept of Correctional Services (DCS) choirs sang to the accompaniment of an acoustic piano and band. President of Kirstenbosch, Jeromé o' Ryan also arranged for the ex-detainees to offer crafts & refreshment items for sale as a learning opportunity to earn some money.
Member of the DCS choir members each received a goodie bag, as did the Foot and Mouth Painters who were in attendance as well.

This amazing project, held in the Recreational hall at the prison, was a humbling eye-opener and is an event l believe should be repeated and supported by all!
