The 'South African Homecoming of the Swedish Award Ceremony' showcased inspiring performances at the Artscape Theatre from youngsters who treated the audience to their singing, dancing and musical talent.
The WCP's seven-piece band, Abatsha (which means 'young ones'), put on an entertaining and educational show that incorporated multimedia clips.
The stage production, held on Sunday, exemplified the foundation's encouragement and mission to uphold children's rights and freedom.
The show kicked into motion with impressive dancing, with drums, marimbas and guitar filling the theatre with rhythm and excitement.
There were also powerful words about children's rights that were expressed by the dancers.
One of the performers, Simbongile Sam, performed her poem,"I Am A Woman", expressing a strong message on the independence of women.
She spoke with vigour and captured the crowd's attention.
Her fellow performer, Deaviah Moodley, commanded the stage with her Indian classical dance and said she enjoyed her craft:
“It’s how I feel when I’m on stage. My stage presence, I just forget everyone’s there and I just have a ball of a time.
