Tunes of Transformation: Impact of Music in Zambia’s Youth

Ever felt totally, lost especially during your youth? So did Diamond, a musician from Zambia. At some point in his younger life, he thought he would end up living on the streets in danger of alcohol abuse. But then, someone introduced him to music, and from then on, everything changed. He has moved away from trouble and focused on creating.

From Trash to Treasure: Project Nightfall Philanthropy Partners with Indonesian Environmental Hero

As a child, Singgih enjoyed the beauty of his village – he played in the pristine rivers and clean streets. But as time passed, he witnessed his once-thriving home transform into a community full of scattered trash! A sad story he had to share with Project Nightfall Philanthropy.

To him, such a state of his home is not acceptable. So Singgih set up a low-cost garbage disposal service called Gerbeku that served households, schools, and local businesses. Singgih distributed free trash bins and cleaned public spaces together with his team. However, he faced the challenge of sustaining the service without burdening the community with higher fees.

Singgih’s innovative solution was to turn organic waste into fertilizer which only a specialized machine can produce efficiently. However, financial constraints threatened this plan.

Believing in his mission, Project Nightfall Philanthropy stepped in to sponsor the acquisition of the organic chopper machine. With this, Singgih can already produce organic fertilizer and supply them to local farmers.

This partnership brought environmental and economic benefits and ensured that Singgih could maintain affordable service fees for the community. We are oroud to be part of this effort, Nightfam! Together, let’s make a cleaner, more livable world.

An outstanding student in Gambia is given the chance to study abroad

Growing up with a single mom, Babucarr faced tough times in school. Rather than giving up, he turned his challenges into motivation for excellence. His impressive academic achievements not only took him to new places but also broadened his perspective on the diverse realities of the world.

Inspired by this journey, he pursued becoming a student leader and eventually decided to dedicate himself to public service in his country, Gambia. Recognizing the importance of expanding his knowledge, Babucarr sought an opportunity to study abroad, aiming to better serve his people. Although he successfully secured admission to the University of Naples in Italy, the financial hurdle of processing his visa and covering travel expenses posed a significant obstacle.

In a heartwarming turn of events, Project Nightfall Philanthropy stepped in to support this determined student, generously donating $1000 for his visa and travel expenses. Babucarr expressed deep gratitude and pledged to make the most of this opportunity. He emphasized that the donation would not only benefit him but also contribute to realizing the dreams he holds for his people.

This selfless nurse in Bhutan is rewarded for her sacrifice

Would you do a job that doesn’t pay you money if it meant you could help save thousands of lives? Because one such person did just that. Sangay Lhaden is a 28-year-old who embodies the spirit of giving and sacrifice.

After completing her nursing degree in India, Sangay returned to her homeland Bhutan to join the healthcare workforce. The pandemic struck and her small country, like so many others at that time, was badly affected. The government could not afford to suddenly hire more people.

She still enlisted to become a volunteer at the only hospital in her city. “At that time, our country was suffering a lot. Our King, he had invested funds from various other fields and healthcare system,” she thought service was her way of giving back. At times, she would get some allowances but it was not consistent.

It’s only two years later that Sangay finally got a formal nursing job offer where she can get paid. Then comes another problem: her parents who supported her financially are now retiring and are returning to their village. Her lack of steady income has left her unable to secure her own place in  the city.

She willingly gave two years of her life for others without expecting anything in return! When Project Nightfall Philanthropy learned about her story, we knew that Sangay deserve some relief from her worries. We will cover her first few months’ rent as she settles into her new work. A boost like this is all she needs right now toward a more stable and secure future.

Sangay’s story is a testament to the incredible impact of selflessness. In a world often consumed by individual pursuits, her actions remind us of the power of altruism. May Sangay’s journey inspire us to bring out the best in ourselves and extend a helping hand to those who need it the most.
