Africa Safari Festival

A Dutch Social Enterprise fosters connections between individuals from diverse cultures in The Netherlands, particularly in Utrecht-Overvecht, and Africa. The aim is to instigate positive change in Africa and the African community in the Netherlands. This transformation commences with altering perceptions of Africa and Utrecht-Overvecht. We collaborate with Zimihc theater Stefanus and DOCK to cultivate inclusive neighborhoods.

We mentor and empower African voices across different neighborhoods, facilitating exchanges through African music festivals, concerts, workshops, films/stories, art, dance, food, crafts, internships, volunteers, and trips to Kenya and Uganda.

Talent Center

Beats of Hope Talent Center in Mombasa, Kenya is a nurturing ground for youth and the community to explore their creative passions in music, singing, instruments, dance, acrobatics, acting, football, and performance arts. This initiative emerged from Founder Daniel’s realization of the challenges African creatives face in entering the industry, often hindered by financial barriers. The Talent Center provides mentorship, training, and economic opportunities to local talent, including the children of Beats of Hope Children’s Home. Equipped with a full-fledged music studio, the Center offers a platform for recording music and albums, with the added support of Daniel’s Record Label, facilitating global exposure for African artists. Moreover, Beats of Hope boasts a professional football team, aspiring to elevate its reach to international acclaim, akin to other successful Kenyan footballers.

Founded by Daniel, it serves as a catalyst for emerging talents from Africa, providing them with the resources and support needed to showcase their creativity and reach wider audiences. With a commitment to authenticity and innovation, the label not only produces high-quality music but also fosters a vibrant community of musicians, producers, and creatives. Through strategic partnerships and distribution channels, the Beats of Hope Record Label is dedicated to elevating African music to new heights, celebrating diversity, and inspiring cultural exchange worldwide.

Studio

In this studio, we uphold the preservation of African knowledge for generations to come, as ‘When an African elder dies, a library falls to the ground’. Our aim is to archive oral traditions by merging traditional music with the creative compositions of the boys and our bands.

OTHER PROJECTS

Model Agriculture Village

We’ve established a model agriculture village in the Teso Region of Uganda, aligned with the Millennium Development Goals, in collaboration with Matunda Hub. Our focus is on empowering local youth to build successful agri-businesses through mentorship and incubation. Through capacity building in entrepreneurship, business coaching, and mentorship, we aim to create a supportive ecosystem that facilitates networking, collaborations, and growth for agriculture entrepreneurs. Our vision is to see every young person in Uganda gain employment or self-employment opportunities through these projects. If you’re interested in volunteering, interning, or spending a meaningful gap year working with us to achieve our goals in Uganda, get in touch. Join us in traveling with purpose!
