How you can help
How does Afrikaya Sponsorship Work? We ask you, our sponsor, for a regular monthly donation. This can be sponsorship in one of two ways.
1.1. General sponsorship: Your sponsorship money goes straight into the school fund and will be spent on whatever the school needs most at that time, allowing each child to directly benefit from this donation.
To make a donation, we would prefer you to donate via MyDonate.
If you are a UK tax payer, this makes Gift Aid on your donation much easier for us to collect. If you would prefer to pay monthly by Direct Debit, please email us and we will send you the relevant paperwork.
1.2. Child Sponsorship: if you wish to sponsor an individual child, please go to Child Sponsorship
2. Book A School Visit
Including an Afrikaya drum class.
Every child should be given the opportunity to have a Kaya experience!! The Kaya Programme has been running successfully for over eight years in schools, youth groups, corporations, community events and music festivals throughout the UK. We run fun, engaging, highly contagious, fully inclusive, workshops in drumming, dance, art and yoga. Let our experienced team of musicians, artists, dancers and therapists engage your children and give them a creative feast they will never forget!!
3. Come Along To A Community Drum Circle
"A Drum Circle is a community music-making event where people sit or stand in a circle while playing world percussion instruments. People play improvised rhythms. Music is created in the moment. Instead of a teacher, there is a facilitator – someone with musical experience and facilitation training who leads from the center of the circle. In the Drum Circle, there is no audience and everyone is part of the performance." Mancub Life Beat.
4. Fund Raising Events
We are regularly organising events to build our school and if you have an idea that you would like to share to help Afrikaya then get in touch via email.
