The NGC Social Development Trust also funded community talent development project in support of the Karas Regional Council and Directorate of Education, Arts and Culture during 2016. The Southern Youth Choir, which was established in February 2005 by Mr. Salomon Kinda, in essence seeks to draw youth choral talent together and for that matter is made up of learners from the four high schools, namely J.A. Nel High School, Suiderlig High School, Keetmanshoop Junior Secondary School and P.K. De Villiers High school from Kharas Region in Namibia. For the past few years, the Southern Youth Choir has nurtured a choral exchange programme with various youth choirs, both locally and across our borders, especially in South Africa. One of such initiatives was the /Aokhoen !Noman festival in Cape Town from 02 – 05 December 2016.
