4,000 volunteers celebrate with Coca-Cola RockCorps in South Africa

Cola RockCorps Concert


This year RockCorps partnered with Coca-Cola® to bring the platform to Africa for the first time.

Coca-Cola and their partner ABI began the platform with a recycling programme in hundreds of local High Schools.  High Schools who recycled the most went on to take part in the platform – Give, Get Given.

Over the past few months 2,000 teens aged 13-19 years old, from the High Schools who recycled the most, have given four hours of their time at Coca-Cola® RockCorps community projects around the Gauteng Province in South Africa.

For the first time ever, youth volunteers were able to share the celebration with a friend, and on 16th November 2013, 4,000 teenagers descended on Johannesburg’s Ellis Park Arena.

It was an unforgettable night as they celebrated their hard work with Busta Rhymes, Ciara, D’Banj and local act Teargas.

The atmosphere was electric as the artists rewarded the volunteers for their hard work.
