Carol, who lives in Khayelitsha, has been volunteering as a community worker in Masidlale for nearly two years. She has been instrumental in forming partnerships between Masidlale and two Khayelitsha schools, St Michaels Primary and Luleka Primary. She has seen to it that the learners that she helped recruit are at their lessons and has been a link between Masidlale learners and their parents. Her new role will expand this interaction to include all the learners and partner schools in Masidlale’s Cape Town Campus. She will ensure the safety of learners travelling to and from lessons; she will follow up on attendance and assist in making Masidlale’s presence more visible in the communities.
For Odile Burden, a Masidlale manager, Carol has proven herself to be hard-working, committed and extremely passionate about bringing classical music education to her community.
Carol is delighted to become a formal part of Masidlale; her vision is huge: to give the next generation career skills while they are still growing and uniting the community through music. Carol has started the Mayibuwe project to so do just that.
