Cape Talk – Five years ago the Rainbow Academy was born – a performing arts and business skills initiative that takes talented kids from economically disadvantaged areas and trains them in a one year tertiary education programme. Now, more than 100 kids have benefitted and found employment. The Academy showcases the amazing talent we have in our City.

They have been doing great work, helping talented people come closer to their dreams.

Radio Pulpit – The Rainbow Academy is Cape Town’s much loved performing arts and business school.
We chat to principal, Thenjiwe Mgedisi, about the academy, who it serves and some of the success of the last 5 years in which the school has been serving Cape Town’s youth.
