Songbird pens song about SDGs
The adage that Music has the power to heal fits well into the life of Camella Muguse, a young and talented songbird whose real life experiences Inspired her to pen a song about Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The 29 year old Muguse who hails from the dusty high density suburb of Kuwadzana, looks up to her heart rendering past to conquer all obstacles that have come her way.
In an effort to raise awareness on the need for a collective effort to collaborate in attaining the aims of the SDGs, the, melodious Muguse penned a song calling on everyone to play their part in making the goals a reality.
The song called titled “we are a family” speaks volumes of how people ought to pull together and make the United Nations SDGs a reality.
She alluded that Gender Equality is the main thrust upon which the song was built. Muguse said she is much concerned about the empowerment of the girl child which she says has compelled her to come up with a charity organization, ‘Shepherd’s Tent”.
Shepard’s Tent focuses on giving young orphaned girls a chance to further their education.
Camella says the fact that one is an orphan should not deter their hopes of furthering education, but should be a new chapter where they appreciate life as it is and dust themselves from such set-backs.
At Shepherd’s Tent, a place where they get nurtured into young, God fearing women,
Camella has managed to come up with a manageable number of girls whom she helps with life skills .
“I’m passionate about the girl child because I lost my parents at a tender age. It is during that time that I realized being an orphan is not the end of the world, but the beginning of new life which needs proper nurturing.
“The love and care that I received after losing my mother, taught me a great deal about love and showing compassion to one another especially the girl child.
“I want to make a difference in my community through empowering these young ladies. It is against this background that I collaborated with Blessing Semba to come up with a song that in a way empowers and speaks for the Girl child but it also focuses on the United Nations SDGs which I’m pretty sure if we all work together, we can attain and change the world.
“I urge all of us to put our hands together and make sure the rights of the girl child are observed and make sure that the SDGs are a reality,”
