Womanhood, self-discovery, creativity and a strong desire to help, these are the pillars of Eniye Kagbala’s new project, Pathways.
The short-film, created in collaboration with Samuel Douek has the objective to raise support for the victims of hurricane Maria, which is considered to be the worst natural disaster on record in the Caribbean, especially for its huge death toll in Dominica and Puerto Rico.
Designer, filmmaker and performer, also known as 3NIY3 and as part of an Afro-Caribbean electronic dance trio based in London called Elephant Disco, Eniye Kagbala is from St. Vincent and the Grenadines. She regularly works with local charities but she is also the founder of her own charitable organisation, the Cicada Foundation. “We set up the Cicada foundation as a charity to empower all communities across St. Vincent and the Grenadines and to enable individuals, especially children, to be at their best and give their best,” she said.
