Swim School Aqua Crazy

Okuhle Media recently produced a 3 part Documentary series called Ocean Adventurer. As part of our social investment we vouched to teach underprivileged children how to swim.

Music lessons

Every Tuesday and Thursday, Sebastian Guile from Harmony Music Foundation comes and gives music lessons to the children.
