Sing Inchanga is a UK registered charity (charity number 1158473), the project was started in 2010 by David Tims and became an official UK charity in 2014. Sing Inchanga aims to improve education and community development through the promotion of music and the arts in deprived areas of South Africa. The charity works with local schools, charities and community groups to provide long lasting and sustainable development in the Valley of 1000 hills, near Durban, KwaZulu Natal.
Musical and arts education are at the core of Sing Inchanga and we strive to provide opportunities for pupils to learn music and provide sustainable teaching in local communities. We help schools to facilitate music teaching by providing grants to them. These grants help fund local music teachers, improve school facilities and provide music tuition to both teachers and pupils. By providing music lessons to teachers, we enable them to pass their new skills on to the students.
The bedrock of Sing Inchanga is its choirs. Since 2010, our founder David has been using his expertise as a musical director to bring together pupils from schools across the valley to form choirs.Read More
Sport is a huge part of any school’s curriculum, but it is particularly important in townships where schools have very little. The two main sports in The Valley of 1000 Hills are football and netball.Read More
Our most ambitious projects are our creative exchanges. Through these exchanges we bring together UK based teachers and experts in their field, to visit The Valley of 1000 Hills.
