Bonjour! My name is Barious Babu Abdul. I am from Congo but I live here in Nakivale.
I’m running in the World Refugee Day 5k – and asking for your support – to make the only music and recording studio in Nakivale refugee settlement (home to 130,000 people!) There are lots of people in Nakivale making amazing music. I’m an artist myself – here’s the song I recently wrote about preventing violence in our community.
What my friends and I would like to do is create a place young kids can come and we can train them how to compose songs and record music. I have a small building ready – I just need to add a roof J. But to make it a place kids can learn we’d need instruments like keyboards, guitars and a mixing board. And maybe a dry erase board, so we can teach lessons.
I hope you’ll give us a boost and help us start the first music studio and school in Nakivale!
