Become a Sponsor

Child Sponsorship

Sponsorship is a long-term, monthly commitment that will have a direct impact on the life of a child, and on the lives of their families and communities. It is an opportunity to develop a one-on-one relationship; to get to know your child and share your love, prayers and financial support to help him or her complete their education.

There are two types of sponsorship through Music for Life:

child-sponsorship

The Child Sponsorship programme provides a long-term opportunity to make a difference in the life of an African child who otherwise might not have the chance for a quality education.

The programme’s current focus is in Uganda, where you can decide to sponsor a boy or girl in an age category of your choice.

These children live with their families or caregivers and attend the community schools supported by Music for Life. Their care includes tuition and school fees, school supplies, uniforms and a meal each day, until they have completed highschool.

The current cost to support a child in a community school is £25 per month, to start sponsoring a child in a community school right now, complete the form below:

Choir Member Sponsorship

Sponsoring a Choir Child is a very special and serious undertaking. You will be helping provide a child with an education and a quality of life, whilst they are with the Choir and on through their developing years.

Choir child sponsorship

Members of the African Children’s Choir™ from Uganda receive full care at the African Children’s Choir Primary School, a boarding school in Entebbe. Choir members from other countries attend the best possible schools from their home countries, ensuring that they receive the same level of care as the Ugandan children.

The full cost to support a Choir member is £150 per month. Most children have five sponsors at £30.

    Choir Children are educated in the private Music for Life Primary School in Entebbe on their return. Music for Life also provide them with all the education that they wish to undertake through to university level. As a result our monthly financial commitment to these children is much higher than to regular programme children that we only support through high school. £150 a Choir child per month represents the total cost of education for a Choir child. We provide fractional sponsorship for Choir children at £30 per month (representing 20%).
