Happy Feet Youth Project is an NPO founded in 2007 by Siviwe Mbinda in an effort to provide a safe after school environment for the children of his community.Through Siviwe’s work as a tourist guide in Langa, he saw an opportunity to further develop the mentor relationship he had with a small group of children. He paired responsible tourism and gumboots dance together as a catalyst to enable psychosocial and concrete benefits for the children.

He was known as the little drummer boy and crept into the hearts of millions of South Africans for his abilities and as the youngest music graduate. Now Daniel Petersen, who used his talents to reach out to underprivileged children, has been recognized by former US president Barack Obama, receiving the prestigious Barack Obama Lifetime Achievement Award.  He started the Daniel Petersen Foundation for underprivileged children who do not have access to musical instruments.
