IAWA Welcomes DJ Holla
Jason Holley, also known as DJ Holla, attended University of Maryland Eastern Shore with I Am, We Are (IAWA) Founder and Chief Executive of Hope Meisha Robinson. He volunteered to assist the youth of IAWA or Ambassadors, with their final fundraiser a Battle of the DJs. Not only is he DJing at their event at no charge, but he also will be DJing at venues in and around Rustenburg and donating his fees to IAWA. Three other DJs are joining him at the IAWA Ambassadors’ Battle of the DJs: Dj Mahawk, DJ Hunter, DJ Tall Deep, and DJ Cutey K. Mahawk, Hunter and Tall Deep are also assisting the Ambassadors by providing the sound system and DJing at a significantly reduced fee.
Jason shared, “I’ve always had a passion for helping others, building future generations, and passing along valued lessons to the youth. Being able to be apart of such a great program, event, and to assist a fellow Hawk was the chance I needed to give back.”
The Battle of the DJs is taking place this Saturday September 22 at Robega Community Hall.
I Am, We Are (IAWA) is a non-profit organization that strives to empower youth with the tools they need to confidently own their futures. Established in 2015, IAWA's first cohort of Ambassadors will be finishing the program this October. The youth, hailing from Rasimone, Chaneng, and Robega, will be traveling to Cape Town 30 September after raising R38 900 by washing cars, cleaning yards, and hosting talent shows. The Battle of the DJs is their last fundraising.
