Why Donate to the Africa Voices Trust?
The Africa Voices programmes make extensive use of professional recording studios and a team of expert facilitators and music professionals. Unfortunately, this makes it expensive to operate and, consequently, we are always looking for sponsors who want to help make a difference in the African music industry.
We aim to be able to run two or more programmes per year, extend our programmes to Gauteng in addition to our base in Cape Town, and to award bursaries to deserving participants in future.
There are four ways in which sponsors can assist us:
- Sponsor a programme (RZA 300,000.00 | $25,000.00 | £16,000.00)
- Sponsor a participant (RZA 30,000.00 |$2,500.00 | £1,600.00)
- Sponsor a product or service
- Sponsor a past-participant bursary
- Make a general donation
We invite you to help us raise the voices of Africa by lending us your financial support. Help us to continue to offer this unique opportunity to Africa's superbly talented musicians.
