Building relationships through drama
Themba Theatre (pronounced with a silent 'h') has been running at Jubilee Church since 2003. It is entirely run by volunteers. We aim to build relationships through drama within the Themba team, the cast and their parents.
Themba is the Zulu word for hope, which we spread by using the proceeds of our shows to support children who are left vulnerable by poverty.
Our current charity is Compassion UK who work around the world supporting children in need. You can read more about them at www.compassionuk.org
We donated the proceeds from our last two shows (Legally Blonde Jr
) to a Compassion intervention project in Uganda, completing and developing the hall at Mirambi Child Development Centre where various activities take place.
Compassion writes: The intervention has been a great success and your support has helped ensure the centre now has a completed hall for skills training sessions, curriculum lessons and a variety of community events. One of the children who attends the centre, Ssemugga, sums-up the impact this intervention has had: “I have learnt that God cares and provides things that we could have never imagined.”
You can read more from Ssemugga in the project report
, and see photos of the completed work.
