#FatumasVoice is a figurative gesture for a platform whereby young people meet to talk about the evils happening in the society and how they could solve them, their hopes for the future, their life experiences as well as networking hence expanding their social circles. We do this through poetry, live music, motivational talks, and open forum discussions where people air their views on a certain chosen topic of the day.
Our purpose for holding this event is to encourage young people like us to know how to express themselves, earn their self-esteem, improve their talents, be responsible citizens and to make them understand the value of networking. We realized that young people do not really get the truth about life in their homes, nor in the
churches or mosques, nor in politics or their social quotas nor in themselves. We had to think of something that will bring them together to talk about important things that will help them mature. So far the bigger bunch of our audience are budding artists. As we grow, we are already having people from the working class trickling in.
#FatumasVoice is a weekly event that happens on every Friday from 4pm-7pm. We receive moral support from a few people like Churchill Winston and Bonnie Kim, who mentor us. We are very encouraged with the impact and progress that this event has made and we only hope that it goes to higher heights.
