English with a Congolese accent for Toilet Twinning Charity

English with a Congolese accent for Toilet Twinning Charity

Toilet Twinning is an initiative that provides people in poor areas of the world with toilet and clean water facilities, with the aim of improving hygiene and health. Donations pay for the installation of a toilet in family homes and local schools. The fund also helps with hygiene education to help prevent the spread of disease.

The charity contacted us for help with supplying and recording a female voice talent in English with a Congolese accent. The video shows how the provision of a toilet has helped one family and changed their lives. They chose Rita’s voice from a selection that we put forward.  It is warm and caring, with a ‘motherly’ tone that matched their brief.

The recording was done to comply with strict time codes to correspond with the original film. The audio was then cleaned and edited in our studio, ready for the client to edit back to the video.
