African Vocals, represented by its leader Joel Nambuli, and 5 other founding members, decided in 2020 to create a vibrant children community choir in the informal settlements of Swakopmund, with the aim of expanding the diversity of music in the community as a universal language that creates peace and harmony.
The idea was to create a project that was born in the community itself and run by members of the community, unlike many other projects in the townships. The main objective that they hope to achieve is to help encourage the children to attend school regularly, keep them off the street, and to give educational and emotional support.
DRC Children Choir contacted us, Tangeni Shilongo Namibia, in 2021 to be part of a network and to have a platform in Europe that will enable them to collect donations. We met in 2021, to set the cooperation basis in order to develope the choir activities.
