Room 13

All profits of the book will go to Room 13.

Room 13 is a unique initiative that provides an environment for underprivileged children to unfurl their imagination. Here they can express themselves in anything from painting and drawing to drama, poetry and storytelling.

Room 13 changes their lives.

It's unique in that the project is essentially run by the children themselves. They are their own management team, they choose their own artist-in-residence. But with this freedom also comes the responsibility of making Room 13 sustainable.

So while they explore their creative talents, they also learn about entrepreneurship and leadership skills.

There are 33 Room 13’s around the world, of which 13 are in South Africa.
