Project Main Details

Zambia Video  
Voice for a video telling the story of orphans in Zambia and the work being done to rescue them. The script has a somewhat conversational, personal, first-hand experience style...telling the story in a heart felt way. Not a promo/narration style, but rather smooth, passionate and reflective as if you witnessed it with your own eyes.

I need a breathy cool sounding voice, but it needs to be natural. If not, it will sound forced/acted.

Here is a link to the rough cut with my scratch track VO in place. My voice sucks, but the pacing, word emphasis, and style of delivery needs to be closely matched. If you want to get the job, you'll want to watch it first.


Turn time is tight. Phone patch will be helpful.

Script Details

Please read a portion from the script below for auditions. 
Try to imagine…this: You’re nine years old. Every day of your life is a struggle. You didn’t eat today and your stomach begs for a tomorrow with food. In the shack that is your home, you wrap yourself with your arms for warmth. The screaming of your parents in the next room forces your hands to your ears. And then…the unthinkable happens. Your dad kills your mom…and then he takes his own life…In one horrific moment, both your parents are gone…and you never even had a chance to say goodbye.

Unfortunately, this nightmare is real. Meet Azizi. This is his story. And though his name means “beloved,” love is the last thing he feels right now.

Through the pain and the heartache, he wonders to himself…What now? Where do I go? Who’s going to take care of me?

Sadly, Azizi is not the only child asking these questions – he’s one of more than a million orphans in Zambia. Like Azizi, their childhood was taken from them far too soon – their innocence, stolen…their life, shattered…their hope, destroyed. And while their stories may be different, they all share one constant – suffering.

At a time in their lives when they should be learning, growing and playing with friends, all their energy and focus shifts to finding their next meal and simply…surviving.

Life in the southern African nation of Zambia isn’t just difficult…it’s next to impossible. 86 percent of the 12 million people who call it home make less than a dollar a day. The average life expectancy in Zambia is a shocking 38 years and it has a higher percentage of orphans than any country in the world. One out of every six children is an orphan – lost...filled with pain and crying out for love.

The cry of the orphan is never missed by God the Father. He’ll move heaven and earth to answer them. “I will not leave you as orphans,” He says, “I will come to you.” And so it was, in the year 2000, that God opened our ears to their cry and laid their burden…heavy…on our hearts. Family Legacy Missions International was established. Established to be a shade and covering for the Orphans of Zambia. And from the beginning, God has orchestrated it all…every strategy and every rescue. And with each passing year, He again breaks our hearts for what breaks His.
