This October the Nifu Nifa Records team visited our 2017 charity partner Education Plus, who were chosen to receive 100% of our profits from digital releases, events and other initiatives throughout the year.
Education Plus established a school, the ‘Casa de los Sueños’, in Pantanal – an urban ghetto on the edge of the city of Granada and one of the poorest places in Nicaragua. A hub for crime, violence and drug abuse, Pantanal has become the source of the majority of Granada’s criminals, child prostitutes, and street children, according to the Nicaraguan Ministry of Family.
Covering their own expenses, the Nifu Nifa team visited the campus and took a tour of the neighbourhood to better understand the work of the school and the dire situation the children face. All the funds raised by Nifu Nifa in 2017 will go to school supplies, paying teachers and further expansion of ‘Casa de los Sueños’.
“The trip to the Education Plus school in Nicaragua was both humbling and inspiring,” said Nordin Marzok Ali, Founder of Nifu Nifa Records. “We cannot thank the Education Plus organisation enough for all their hard work for the people of Pantanal, and for hosting our visit.”
