Project Main Details

Nigerian accent Widows Christmas Appeal 
We're looking for a West African-accented English-speaking female voice to provide a voiceover for a charity's Christmas appeal video. The video will be posted online and circulated to the charity's largely-Christian UK supporter base.

The video is based around an interview with a Nigerian widow whose husband was killed in an attack by religious extremists. The charity has provided her with help moving to a safer area and assistance with school fees for her children.

A voiceover is required as the interviewee's accent is considered too strong for the audience to understand. The selected voice will be clear enough to be easily understood while retaining an identifiably West African accent.

This is clearly quite an emotive appeal, but the interview took place some time after the events, so her original tone is mostly calm and reasonably softly-spoken. So it's not overly dramatic, but there should be a sense of quiet desperation in the opening words as she recalls how she was feeling at that time.

The selected voice will need to provide a final wav audio file by the end of Sun 2 Dec.

Script Details

Custom demo required 
When my husband was killed in a Boko Haram attack, I gave up. I thought my life was over.
All I could think was, ‘How will I look after my children – feed them, care for them when they are sick, pay for their school fees?’
I lost hope.
But Open Doors came. The pastor encouraged me and told me that this was not the end.
