In this segment of South Africans Doing Great Things, we chat to Manager at the SAMRO Foundation James French about the work they do for the community.
French describes the role of SAMRO by saying that they assist in collecting and disbursing royalty income from radio stations.
He adds that they distribute these royalties to people who are musicians in the community.

I offer them the corporate social investment opportunities that we have through our programs he says.
