Orphan Sweet Lullaby / Süßes Schlaflied für Waise / Doce Canção de Ninar para Órfã / Dulce Canción de Cuna para Huérfana

The song ‘Sweet Lullaby’ is based around a traditional Baegu Lullaby from the Solomon Islands called ‘Rorogwela’.

The song uses a vocal sample originally recorded by ethnomusicologist Hugo Zemp in 1970 and later released by UNESCO as part of their Musical Sources collection.

The lyrics refer to a young orphan being comforted by his older brother despite the loss of their parents.

The video consists of a little girl riding a tricycle in front of iconic scenes from around the globe (Moscow, Barcelona, New York City, Varanasi, and other locations) and was also nominated for several awards at the 1994 MTV Video Music Awards.

Sasi sasi o to aro aro
O angi si nau boroi amu
Ni ma oe e fasi korona
Dolali dasa na, lao dai afuimae
Afuta guau mauri, Afuta wela inomaeSasi sasi ae o angisi nau
Boroi nima oe e fasi koro na
Dolali dasa na, lao dai afuimae
Afuta guau mauri, Afuta wela inomae  

According to UNICEF (The United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund), if orphans were a country of their own, the population of 153 million orphans worldwide would rank 9th in the World.

When children do not receive adequate personal interaction within a loving environment, development is stunted and learning abilities are delayed or lost.

Many orphanages are simply unaware of the damaging physical and psychological impact institutional care has on children. Many kids age out only to face a future of crime, prostitution, or trafficking.

The Hope Effect is changing orphan care by providing solutions that mimic the family. Two-parent, family-style homes provide opportunity for each child to flourish and thrive.

Access to health, dental, and social care is provided while each child is prepared for the future through education, responsibility, support and the structure that parents were designed to provide.
