Victor Mandela fled his country, South Sudan, when the civil war broke out in 2013. He crossed the desert and knew the best and worst of the human being: he saw crying, dying, sharing and helping until he reached Bidibidi, in Uganda, The largest refugee settlement in the world, where together with the rest of the settlements, live more than a million and a half South Sudanese, of which 71% are children.

Victor is now 10 years old and loves photography. He travels the field with his paper camera capturing unrepeatable moments without the need for film, batteries or battery.

We wanted to SING his story through a beautiful show with the children of one of our project choirs: "Música para acercar mundos, CORO SAFARI" (Music to bring worlds closer together, SAFARI CHOIR).

NOW THIS STORY IS TOLD MUSICAL, to continue sowing hope, to be able to finance scholarships, plant fruit trees, give bikes to girls so that they can continue studying and do not marry prematurely, and to restore dignity and hope to women victims of rape and torture.

About us

"Joy, enthusiasm and love ... MAKE MIRACLES!"
"Joy, enthusiasm and love ... MAKE MIRACLES!"

Nzuri Daima is a non-profit Foundation, which acts through awareness and defense of human rights in Spain, and cooperation and development projects in East Africa.

We believe that culture and the arts change the world, that music heals the soul, and that 1 + 1 + 1 .. together, EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE.

We have been collaborating for more than 20 years in the construction of a more just world. We are all volunteers and we act from a chain structure, not a pyramid.

Our "aunty" Almudena has been in charge of putting into the mouth of the baobab, the words and voice of those who unfortunately don't have loudspeakers to be heard, and from her hand comes the story of Victor Mandela.

Victor is a South Sudanese refugee now almost 12 years old. When he met Almudena he chased her through all the settlements like a true reporter.

She returned to look for him with a real camera, to encourage him to continue developing his talent. After searching and searching among the hundreds of thousands of Bidibidi children, they found themselves again. It was in this reunion where he met his name, saw his squint eyes capable of capturing the many beauties of life in an instant, and began an adventure together, which has only just begun, and today it comes to you in shape story.

The translator who accompanied Almudena, who although she speaks Swahili doesn't speak Arabic, told her in amazement after the reunion "I was very surprised that you had to come from so far away to share with us here in the settlements, look at the gifts of a particular child among so many thousands, and have decided to return to look for him to encourage him to follow his dreams. We should all look more at the talents of our children, not force them to standard education, but treat them as beings unique, and encourage their virtues, to share them with the world. "

And Our small-great singers are part of the project "Música para acercar mundos - CORO SAFARI" (Music to bring worlds closer - SAFARI CHOIR), they are different choirs with whom in Africa we work on music and dance as a means of healing, and who have become heroes and ambassadors of a better world POSSIBLE, thanks to incredible tours; where we have sung with Alejandro Sanz, Rosario, Txarango ... or participated in programs like "La Voz".

At Nzuri Daima we are convinced that "changing the world ... is for children."

To what will we allocate your contributions

With €3,500 we edit 500 books.

With the proceeds from the sale of the books we will finance scholarships for the new course that begins in January, for South Sudanese and Congolese refugees in Uganda, convinced that by educating the present, we are building the future.

Querid@s amig@s,¡muy feliz año nuevo!

Estamos en la recta final del verkami para editar los libros y en las puertas del nuevo curso escolar en Uganda.

Todas las aportaciones que consigamos estos días serán ya beneficio directo para la compra de bicicletas que permitan a muchas niñas seguir estudiando, y que nos ayudarán a pagar becas para que niños y niñas vayan al colegio.

Ha sido un año durísimo, muchas niñas se han quedado embarazadas al irse con hombres que les pagaban comida, muchísimas, tenemos el corazón roto y necesitamos encontrar padrin@s o formas como esta de ofrenciendoos algo a cambio poder cubrir los gastos para que vuelvan al cole, allí al menos tienen asegurada una comida, y a los que podemos meter internos 3, y servicios médicos, y cariño.

Estas bolsas son una forma preciosa de colaborar con todo esto, y así ayudamos al planeta a eliminar totalmente los plásticos.

#01 / ¡Feliz Navidad y Próspero 2021!

Queridos mecenas,

Deseamos que hayáis tenido una muyyy Feliz Navidad. Y que sigáis disfrutando de un tranquilo y lleno de amor final de año.

Queremos agradeceros vuestro apoyo y dedicaros de forma especial el villancico navideño que hemos estado haciendo estos días.

Lo hemos hecho con los niños y niñas de nuestro proyecto "música para acercar mundos" y con la ayuda de un proyecto de circo suuuper bonito que trabaja en uno de los barrios más marginales de Kampala, El Barrio de Katwe.

En el video salen también nuestro profe de música de la escuela de primaria para refugiados en Bidibidi, algunos de nuestros bailarines también refugiados allí y un montón niñ@s precios@s con los que hicimos un concurso de juguetes de los suyos.. hechos a mano.

También, como un pequeño guiño, aparece Victor Mandela.

Queríamos hacer un villancico que… read more
