Amoyo is so much more than just a performing arts training programme.  Our classes are a platform to engage with our youth, to show them we care about them, about the choices they are making, that we are there to support and help them develop into successful, employable adults.  The Amoyo journey aligns  skill development with self-respect, respect for others, integrity, emotional intelligence and communication skills needed to survive in the fast paced professional world outside of their immediate environment of poverty, neglect, criminal and gang activity.

Our MISSION is to uplift the communities of Imizamo Yethu and Hangberg, one child at a time, through an after-school and holiday programme offering high-quality dance, drama, music and performance classes.

Our VISION is that each Amoyo child will continue into tertiary education after school, equipped not only with performing arts skills but also with the life skills, self-esteem, self-confidence and self-discipline to conquer life successfully.

Our PHILOSOPHY is one of gratitude. Amoyo means “spirit of appreciation” (appreciating everything and everyone) and our unique approach to upskilling and empowering the children of Hout Bay is already having a huge impact, not only on the children but on their families and the broader community, too.
