What do our ambassadors think?

Stockard Channing


After its incredible success in Europe, Africa and South America, I cannot wait to see the impact this life-changing charity has across the US.

Emily Watson


It’s essential that young people have a way to tell stories and to express themselves like this. It’s what feeds culture and builds communities worldwide.

David Harewood


I would have crawled over broken glass to be part of this project.

Christoph Waltz


It’s a unique project born out of the passionate belief that young people need to be given a voice and opportunities to change their lives.

Kweku Mandela

Nelson Mandela’s grandson

When my grandfather saw the work of these students, he remarked, ‘They are so young, and yet so deeply talented. We are hugely grateful to The Foundation for the opportunity they are affording these young South Africans.” There’s no better way to communicate across cultures than with images which take your breath away. One photo can change a life. The ‘Wembley to Soweto’ kids are an example of that.

Dame Judi Dench


Talent exists everywhere, it just needs an inspirational project like Wembley to Soweto to unearth it. Give a little bit of encouragement and there’s no end to what people can achieve.

Bill Nighy


This project is exemplary. It’s beautiful. It’s simple, it’s necessary and it’s groovy.
