Kia shouts with SHOUT
A sponsor and supporter of the SHOUT initiative since its inception, Kia Motors South Africa has renewed its association with the SHOUT Foundation. This non-profit organisation, founded by musicians Danny K and Kabelo Mabalane, aims to give the South African nation a voice in the fight against crime.
The SHOUT Foundation launched its new single on Spring Day, September 1. With the launch of what has been dubbed SHOUT 3, the organisation’s focus is now on education. All funds raised from the download of the new song will go towards the building of SHOUT libraries across the country.
“We hope that if we reach young kids and encourage them to work hard at getting an education, they will be better equipped to live a successful and crime-free life,” says Danny K. “This is why we decided to use the funds raised from downloads of ‘Smile’ to build libraries in primary schools across South Africa.”
The roll-out of the SHOUT libraries has already begun, with three having been built in Soweto, Mitchells Plain and Phalaborwa.
The SHOUT Foundation’s aim is to reach the most needy schools and communities and to ensure that the libraries are built, managed and stocked properly, with the learners being taught the skills to use them appropriately.
As part of its support of the SHOUT Foundation, KIA Motors is sponsoring a brand new KIA Picanto worth R120 000, which one lucky person can win by simply downloading the SHOUT song.
