Schobsi commented on Developing Talents in Art for self-sustenance.

Well done indeed, Ssozi and Rockies Troupe!

What a pleasure to see you have come so far!

Every time I saw the Rockies Troupe perform, I was not only touched by the power, energy and enthusiasm, the young people shared with the audience, but what stayed with me the most, was the feeling of family you have given me. 
Rockies Troupe is much more than just a cultural group, it is a true family, that provides support to each other. Support and a feeling of belonging are so essential for a community to developm This is why I believe, that you at Rockies Troupe have the power to transform the society at large! You start with the young talents, you foster their abilities, you make their dream come true and this is the starting point of something much bigger. They will go out into the world changed and they will continue this change.

Another important aspect in your work is the preservation of all different types of cultures. In order to live together peacefully, despite cultural differences, we need to learn from each other. We need to know about each other's cultures in order to appreciate each other even more. This is exactly what Rockies Troupe is doing. And you are doing it in the most beautiful and powerful way possible!

I wish you all the best with this project!
You have come a far way and you will go even further!
