Training of trainers of NBF’s volunteer staff in Hip Hop

To teach both the skills and the principles of Hip Hop to the youth involved in NBF. Today’s youth and children of Nepal were either born or grew up as adolescents during the ten-year violent conflict that affected the country from 1996 to 2006. Following this conflict, the lack of opportunities or daring to dream are factors that contribute to frustration, leading to attraction to drug abuse and violence among the youth and children. The 10 year civil war has taught the youngsters that violence is the way to get what you want, even if it means hurting someone else to fulfil ones’ wishes. Hip Hop attracts youngsters with its 4 elements (DJ, MC, Breakdancing and graffiti culminating in HipHop Theatre) and at the same time gives the message that the 4 Principles of Love, Peace, Unity and Fun are the right attitude. Therefore NBF wants to give the youth international professional Hip Hop figures who believe in the 4 Principles as role models. Hence this mission could be beneficial if Planete Urgence could help in bringing in the volunteers.
