UK Choir Tour 2013

Sithobelumthetho Primary School had a need for more affordable energy. Its previous electricity was intermittent, unreliable and very expensive. The electricity was paid for out of school fees but only 50% of the schools 900 families could afford to pay the fees (£20 per child, per year).

Summer 2013 saw a 26 strong children's choir travel to England to complete a 3 week tour of the UK. Whether in sold out concert venues, school halls, radio and TV studios or simply busking in the street these children put their all into every performance. They even recorded their own 2013 Tour Album. The result was the purchase and installation of solar panels on the roof of Sithobelumthetho Primary School in Madadeni.

The solar panels have been up and running since January 2014, they have provided a reliable and consistent supply of electricity to the school and have virtually eradicated the schools electricity bill.

"Thank you to all the young and amazing performers for a magnificent show. You made me a very proud South African."

Heidi Simpson - Host 2013

"The experience of hosting 2 of the Project Zulu children was exciting, heart warming, exhausting, emotional and I believe, at least for our children, life changing. Rarely have 3 weeks been so brilliant in the Simpson household, thanks for all of it and count us in for any and every future tour."

Sherrie Eugene Hart - Broadcaster, Correspondent and Researcher 2013

"I was absolutely gob smacked when I saw Project Zulu perform. The energy and excitement stayed with me for the whole week after. Even now, when I think of them, I have a beaming smile ...thanks to the children and their teachers who gave us so much joy."

Neil Blundell - Principle of Bristol Cathedral Choir School 2013

"Just sitting in my office after an amazing Colston Hall show this evening... It was wonderful to observe how music brought 2000 people together in that way. A really inspiring event."
