| Rope was set up by Genda (Ahmed Nyei) and Nneka born in Nigeria, born in Liberia. From different places, different backgrounds, different cultures, with different life histories but seeing with the same eyes. Waking up, they saw the same needs and came together to do what they could:” We are musicians and use our words and music to raise awareness but we want to do more than raise awareness. We want to find solutions”.
We saw people, particularly children, who are less privileged than ourselves, handicapped by disadvantages – resulting from war, from poverty, from exploitation of all types. We saw children without perspectives. We saw a wealth of wasted talent and potential. We saw stifled visions and dreams with no ground in which to take root and grow.
