PRESS RELEASE: JIFAN Global Youth Development Project

VISION:
– create accessible opportunities for youths that will teach them to live good lives and become pillars in their communities.

HOW THIS VISION WILL BE REALIZED

– Mostly Through Sport & Music

Welcome to JIFAN’s Global Youth Development Project, a project aimed at bringing life and bringing it more abundantly.
I believe this project was inspired by God so that people like you might be the beginning of transformation in your communities and beyond. I believe that together we can have a positive impact on our country and in this world seeing lives transformed and communities grow in peace and joy. To achieve this, we need YOU. Only together, being obedient to God, can we reach this life changing goal for the glory of His name.
This project is all about gathering young musicians and those passionate about sport from all over Zambia and beyond to produce life giving music and forming different sporting teams in their provinces or regions. Music that builds people up, rather than tearing them down. Music that teaches, music that encourages and sports teams that bring about whole person development. Through this project we will build strong youth so we don’t need to fix broken adults.
To bring about whole person development we will be targeting six aspects of life, looking to develop strong young people who love God and love life.

(1) SPIRITUAL
(2) INTELLECTUAL
(3) EMOTIONAL
(4) SOCIAL
(5) ENVIRONMENT
(6) PHYSICAL

Already young people are being trained  in music production and sports coaching with the aim of promoting growth in these key areas of life. Young people who get involved with this programme will get all the help they need to produce music and form sports teams by themselves. The music production and sport team formation will take place as close to them as possible in studios and fields in their own province.

THE MAIN TWO STRATEGIES IN THIS PROJECT

MUSIC STRATEGY

Music has four (4) categories

Category 1

PASSIONATE ARTISTS

We encourage artists to produce music which is in line with the vision of this project and fits into one of the 6 key aspects of life mentioned above.
We are recording artists by province as follows (this is the same in other countries):

(1) Youth Development (Part 1)
CENTRAL PROVINCE

(2) Youth Development (Part 2)
LUSAKA PROVINCE

(3) Youth Development (Part 3)

Category 2

PASSIONATE DANCERS

This is for youths who are not musicians but are passionate about dancing. We are making Dancing Beats without vocals for these individuals. These beats will be named after the name of the village, town, city, province or state. We will upload these dancing beats on music websites for two reasons (1) so that other passionate dancers can download and use them for their own pursuits (2) and so that the general public may use these beats for their own private functions eg weddings and birthday parties etc.

To clarify, there will be free beats uploaded without the JIFAN logo, these are for artists to record their life giving lyrics over. The beats with the JIFAN logo are for dancers and not for the recording of vocals.

Category 4

In this category we provide different FREE BEATS without the JIFAN logo (we will use only the studio and producers logos). These free beats will be given to all artists; we encourage all artists to record messages to these beats that bless not curse, that build life not destroy it, to promote peace not violence, to encourage good morals not bad, to motivate and inspire for doing what is right.

Artists understand this: any JIFAN beat which has my logo (JIFAN – Jesus Is For All Nations) is NOT a free beat, it is a JIFAN project beat, please DON’T record your vocals to it. We are targeting to provide at least two JIFAN FREE BEATS every month. These will be produced by local and international studios and producers. This is how the free music will be presented on music websites when these free beats are being uploaded:
“JIFAN – Free Beat (No. 1), (No. 2), (No.3), (No. 4), (No. 5)… Etc Please use these free beats to God’s glory.

SPORT STRATEGY

Why Sport?

Globally 65% of young people under the age of 35 play some form of sport twice a week, with a further 35% engaging in sport once in a week. Seeing as young people already love engaging in sport, it makes sense to use sport as a vehicle for whole person development.

We are working to form different sports teams in villages, towns, cities and provinces. Through these teams we will be targeting the six aspects of life aiming to bring richer life for all those involved. To start off we are aiming to build sport teams in each province of Zambia, each team with its own name. Below you will find the teams name for each province of Zambia.

Muchinga Province
NAME: DOER
(Football Team, Basketball Team, Netball Team etc)

Western Province
NAME: WISE
(Football Team, Volleyball Team, Basketball Team etc)

Southern Province
NAME: STEWARD
(Football Team, Netball Team, Basketball Team etc)

Central Province
NAME: KIND
(Football Team, Basketball Team, Volleyball etc)

Eastern Province
NAME: SALT
(Football Team, Basketball Team, Netball Team etc)

Northern Province
NAME: PEACEABLE
(Football Team, Volleyball Team, Netball Team etc)

North Western Province
NAME: SERVANT
(Football Team, Volleyball Team, Netball Team etc)

Lusaka Province
NAME: FAITHFUL
(Football Team, Basketball Team, Volleyball Team etc)

Luapula Province

Copperbelt Province

(Football Team, Basketball Team, Volleyball Team etc)

Sports teams started in the name of the JIFAN GLOBAL YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROJECT will be named in line with the  provinces mentioned above. Teams started in other countries will have sperate names.

Below are some of the sports activities we will be focusing on:

OUTREACHES
– mission teams, disabled, sports clinic, leagues,
RECREATION
– music, board games, puppetry, art and craft
SPECIAL
– hospital, sports related teaching, disabled activities
COMPETITIVE
– volleyball, football, basketball, chair ball, foot soul, chess, music
EVENT
– kids games, field outreaches, sports clinic, run for the nations, camps and picnic
SENIORS
– swimming, exercises, walking, stretching, jogging
SOCIAL RECREATION
– outings, dancing, meals, movies, music
WELLNESS
– weight control, nutrition, weight training, whole body training, exercises

We want to see youths develop holistically through the strategies mentioned above. We will be shooting videos for sport training sessions, games and all sport activities, before trying to make these videos available to a national and even international audience. We will work towards this goal so that we might use the talents of young people to bless to the world. We would love to see youths go into the world and serve it passionately.

NOTE THIS: THIS IS A GLOBAL YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROJECT SO IT SHALL BE HAPPENING IN DIFFERENT COUNTRIES NOT ONLY IN ZAMBIA. Through music:
we will try and produce music that mixes both English and local languages so that they are available and relevant to all. Music and video production will be used as a platform from which many people from different cultures can be reached by your edifying messages. This project has been built so that you and other young people can be involved in developing lives and communities to God’s glory.

I BELIEVE TOGETHER WE CAN DEVELOP YOUTHS AND ADULTS IN AND THROUGH THE WORLD OF MUSIC AND SPORT. REMEMBER THAT 80% OF WORLD’S POPULATION UNDERSTAND THE LANGUAGE OF MUSIC AND SPORT.

GOD BLESS YOU MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS AS WE CONTINUE DEVELOPMING ZAMBIA, AFRICA AND THE WORLD TO GOD’S GLORY!

DOES THIS PROJECT PAY THOSE PARTICIPATING IN IT?

JIFAN GLOBAL YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROJECT IS A NON PROFIT PROJECT WITH A VISION TO CREATE ACCESSIBLE OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOUTHS THAT WILL TEACH THEM TO LIVE GOOD LIVES AND BECOME PILLARS IN THEIR COMMUNITIES

ALL THE PROJECTS RUN BY JIFAN ARE NOT FOR SALE. THE DESIRE IS TO SEE EVERY YOUTH HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO DEVELOP AS A PERSON.

JIFAN DOES NOT PAY ANY OF THE ARTISTS OR ATHLETES FEATURING IN GLOBAL YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS!  JIFAN REMINDS PRODUCERS AND COACHES NOT TO FEATURE ARTISTS AND PLAYERS THAT NEED MONEY IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROJECT. WE WANT ONLY ARTISTS AND ATHLETES WITH THE DESIRE AND PASSION TO SEE THEIR LIVES AND LIVES OF OTHERS POSITIVELY CHANGED.

GOD BLESS US TOGETHER AS WE CHANGE LIVES AND DEVELOP COMMUNITIES
