The Lalela Scarf Story:

Lalela

[la~le~la] v: A Zulu word that means ‘to listen.

Lalela started in 2010 as an outreach, after schools art program, for vulnerable children, in the Cape Town area of Hout Bay. Working to break the barriers of challenged circumstances, they start age 6 to develop the art of imagination and continue though grade12 connecting the arts to everything important in a child’s life, from core academics to critical life skills.
