Born from the vision of filmmaker Dominique Vandenhoudt an international team from the Ayyoub Foundation embarked on a sweeping project to celebrate diversity.
Called Voices of Humanity, the project takes in a series of remarkable journeys around the world in a bid to both collect and share the literal voices of humanity. Its mandate will also be to connect grassroots projects with organizations capable of providing the resources they need.
The overall idea is simple: working from a mobile film studio inside the amazing ZaiTruck,
Filmmaker Dominique Vandenhoudt – uses a specially formulated questionnaire to interview a stunning variety of people. At each point in its journey the team is also setting up a small mobile cinema to show people selected recordings from prior stops, acting as a cultural connector.Ultimately, these interviews will form a record of the human species in all its glorious diversity, with the overarching aim of preserving the universal threads in the stories of our humanity and our home world for future generations.
The questions being asked have been carefully designed to gain meaningful insight
The Voices of Humanity vehicle made its way from South Africa to the top of Africa along the old Cape-to-Cairo route carrying the precious cargo of its various encounters along the way and continued through Europe all the way to the USA. Dedicated to telling the stories of humankind from across every culture and creed,the Ayyoub Foundation not only creates a platform for people to tell their stories but seeks also to truly hear their stories. In hearing the most pressing issues faced by the people in our global village, the Ayyoub Foundation is committed to spearheading initiatives in response that could bring about lasting transformation in their communities.
