Kgwebong Consulting, an Organisation Development company that is dedicated to the creation of Communities of Excellence in different schools and communities, has embarked on a project that links different Embassies that contributed to the South African liberation struggle.  

On 10 March 2017, Kgwebong Consulting in partnership with the Department of Arts and Culture, Cultural Consulate of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran and The Diplomatic Society hosted a cultural event at Tsarogaphoka Primary School in Soshanguve. The purpose of the event was to share Iranian culture; promote interaction and understanding between different cultures; create awareness and facilitate dialogue with the Soshanguve community on Social Cohesion and the role of Iran during the South African struggle against apartheid.

The famous Iranian band ABRON Band performed and shared the stage with local artists and poets such as Joeman Kgomo. In his speech, Mr. Lekola, the Principal at Tsarogaphoka Primary School mentioned that he would love to have literature from Iran so that they could learn more about the country. The Cultural Attaché of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Counsellor Shahronz Falahat Pisheh expressed his appreciation for the love and friendship from South Africa. The Embassy of the Republic of Iran made a commitment to establish a library at Tsarogaphoka Primary School.

The Department of Arts and Culture also committed to partnering with Kgwebong Consulting for further engagements with different Embassies. The Deputy Director of International Relations Thapi Segoati, indicated that she hope that other countries could engage with other schools in the community to help build more libraries. This will enable South African schools and communities to learn more about the cultures of these countries.
