The Safe House Project is a mission to build a shelter to protect youth in the Soshanguve township near Pretoria, South Africa.
In June, Virginia based Christian hip-hop record label Renaissance Movement Music released an album called Safe House, from which all proceeds will go to The Safe House Project. Renaissance Movement Music, abbreviated as RMM, includes three artists, Sinai, Legin, and Focus.
Last week, Sinai released a music video for one of the songs on the project, “Refugee,” which features Da’ T.R.U.T.H. and Spec.
“Refugee” is inspired by the global refugee crisis. According to UNCHR, the refugee agency of the United Nations, there are over 65 million people worldwide who have been forcibly displaced. They also state that 20 people are displaced every minute.
“Not to take anything away from them, because we don’t know what its like to be in their shoes, to have to do it to the extent that they have had to, but at some point in our lives we have also needed a safe place with some security.”
Sinai said that each person has felt alone, without a home, without a purpose, emotionally if not physically. The Safe House Project will build a center that will serve as a sanctuary to protect elementary-aged children from human trafficking and sexual violence in the Soshanguve township, where 400,000 people reside.
