Crime Doesn’t Pay

We are excited to share the first of five films made at Tshepo Hope as part of the Changing the Story project. Crime Doesn’t Pay was made by a group of students aged 10-13 and is about the consequences of crime. This is a key issue the children felt needed to be addressed in their community. The song is well known in South Africa as something that prisoners sing when they miss their families, expressing regret for their actions.

We hope you’ll agree that these kids are incredibly talented!

Watch the film below.
