The Maitland Group came on board as the first official corporate backer of the campaign, with more than a hundred new mentors signed up during the PJ Powers campaign and a variety of new partnerships formed with potential backers, funders and partners.
The live performance at South Africa House by PJ Powers was one of the highpoints of the visit and old fans as well as new were as moved by her dynamic songs as they were by her life story and the affirmative way in which she has taken charge of her roller-coaster life.
PJ Powers – or Thandeka, as she has been known since her first performance in Soweto in 1982, continues to create new music that speaks to the times as she weaves her stories through word and sound.

“It is time for me to give back to the people who nurtured me.
I want to congratulate South Africans living abroad – you are so proud to be South Africans, send some of that back home.”
