Art Under Apartheid

This looks like another great organization that helps kids find outlets to deal with their everyday situation. The focus is on art but they run many other projects such as English classes, dance, theater and sports. I'm looking into possibly helping out with them as well as Project Hope isn't too sure that I can teach the yoga and I feel that is an important component in what I would like to accomplish. The structure with Art Under Apartheid seems a bit less rigid as well.
