Child Sponsorship Programme


No child with musical potential should be denied the opportunity to develop that potential. Through supporting our sponsorship scheme, you will allow a competitively-selected child to commence individual instrumental and/or singing lessons. The progress of the child will be supported by regular recitals, and charted by entrance for ABRSM examinations.



For Lusaka-based candidates, the cost of sponsoring a child is just £12 a week. Our hope is to encourage sponsors to pledge their support for at least two years in order to ensure continuity for the child.


How will the child be selected?

There will be an anuual selection competition for scholarships and exchanges in the June preceding each academic year. Children taking part in our outreach programmes will be encouraged to audition. All auditions will be adjudicated by music teachers working with the Trust and one of the trustees (or a delegate).


Our criteria for selection will be:

  • Evidence of musical potential

  • Enthusiasm for learning

  • Social work evidence of lack of means in order to ensure funds support the most-needy and achieve their maximum impact.
