RADA is an acronym for Rape, Alcohol, Drug, Abuse and is a Non-Profit Organization based in Johannesburg. The NGO was founded by the current CEO John-Paul Nobrega eight years ago with the aim to bring about positive change in the world.
The multifaceted organization adopts and supports various homes and centres which include orphanages, old age homes, Early Childhood Development centres, schools, homes for the
disabled, shelters for the homeless and day care centres situated in various vulnerable communities in South Africa.
RADA Unearthed music albums support and promote new music, share messages of inspiration through the music and create opportunities to highlight the work that RADA is doing. Royalties generated from each song is fed back into RADA to build, promote and support the community projects the non-profit is involved with. The music therefore has a direct impact on the lives of many.
“Without the undying commitment and overwhelming support of our many media partners, artists, celebrities, corporate sponsors and RADA Angels, RADA would not exist. I can only express my absolute sincere gratitude to you all and thank you for creating positive change,” says John-Paul Nobrega CEO of RADA.
