Our philosophy has been to build on success and seek ways to expand the program to other areas outside of Bloemfontein. If it works here in Mangaung surely it can work in other areas as well. Following on the success and the model of the Mangaung program and at the encouragement of the Community Services Department at the University of the Free State, contact was made at a number of schools in the southern Free State commonly known as the Xhariep District. Tuition was provided in Philippolis, Springfontein, Edenburg and Trompsberg. The Xhariep program, which was discontinued for two years, was restarted in the town of Trompsberg at the PT Saunders Combined School. In 2011 at the direction of the HOD of the Department of Sport, Arts, Culture and Recreation Adv. Malakoane, the program was expanded to include Kroonstad, which is a 4.5 hour return trip. In 2014 the program was expanded to include schools in Thaba Nchu, in cooperation with the Mmabana Art and Cultural Center.
