THE SHILOH PROJECT (article first published : 2001-11-17)

The Shiloh Project is a modern, technologically-assisted Repatriation adventure, in which a team of bright and skilled Caribbean youths between the ages of 12-24 will set off on the adventure of a lifetime – a pioneering trip across the ocean to the other side of their world to meet, share cultures and skills with youths and youth groups on the African Continent in South Africa.

The youths call themselves “The Rainbow Tribe” because of the variety of racial groups and origins they represent and their belief in a culture of racial tolerance and harmony.

During their three months stay, the Shiloh Project team will work with South African youth in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban to share skills in information technology, education, agriculture and entertainment. They also intend to set up income-earning small businesses in joint-venture partnerships with young South African organisations to encourage a continued exchange of culture, trade, economic development and visits between South Africa and the Caribbean.

In Durban, they will link with Ningizimu School for the Severely Mentally Handicapped and its art teacher Robin Opperman. They will also host a reggae concert with Buju Banton and Tony Rebel.

More details from Robin Opperman on 031 305-3408 or 082 661-3720, fax 031 305-6090 or e-mail: michaelm@iafrica.com. Or visit www.webprovider.co.za/a4online
