13-12-2013 NTJAM ROSIE NEW AMBASSADOR FOR WORLD VISION
Singer Ntjam Rosie joins World Vision to help the world’s poorest children
Amersfoort – Dutch singer and fashion icon Ntjam Rosie becomes ambassador of the international development organization World Vision, to stand up for the rights of children who are living in poverty. The collaboration between Rosie and World Vision will officially start on December 14th at the Goudse Schouwburg in Gouda, where she performs her show ‘At the back of beyond’ as part of her theatre tour through The Netherlands. In her position as ambassador, Rosie will raise awareness of vulnerable children in developing countries. “The reason I’m becoming ambassador of World Vision, is because I believe every child has the right to a sound base: going to school, drinking clean water, having a roof over your head and living in a loving environment.”
Ntjam Rosie was born in Cameroon and knows what it’s like to grow up in an African village. “I know what it feels like to walk for hours to go to school. I know how it feels when a water pump is built in the middle of your village and you no longer have to walk miles into the forest to get water. Good health care and education are very normal in The Netherlands, but in some countries it is not like that at all! What I like the most about World Vision is the sustainability of their vision. The aim is that at the end of their program, the community will be self-sustaining and independent. That is a wonderful aspiration.
Ambassadors give children a voice
World Vision also is excited to start the collaboration. Ntjam Rosie performed at the North Sea Jazz festival and is a widely known jazz singer. The Dutch public can also know her from her performances in the television show De Wereld Draait Door, and because of interviews in national newspapers and women’s magazines. Aline Soerdjpal, coordinator of the Dutch World Vision ambassadors, explains why it is important to have Ntjam Rosie as ambassador: “By working together with ambassadors as Ntjam Rosie we give a voice to children who would otherwise not be heard. In this way we can make a difference in the lives of children in developing countries and in the lives of people here.”
Theatre tour ‘At the back of beyond’
Ntjam Rosie toured through Asia and Eastern Europe with her show called ‘At the back of beyond’, named after her recently launched album. At the moment she performs in Dutch theatres. After her performance on December 14th Rotterdam and Amsterdam on December 19th explain more about her ambassadorship and what it means for children to be able to live their lives in all its fullness.
Ntjam Rosie had a very successful tour participating at cultural exchange programs in China and playing concerts in South Korea. This tour was supported by FONDS PODIUM KUNSTEN (FPK) and the Netherlands Consulate General in Hong Kong .
