We have a lot planned for this year and we need you to help us achieve our 2018/19 goals:
1. Support our free samba sessions. We are providing free samba drumming workshops to children from the local community of Ijegun-Egba, Satellite Town and need your help to ensure we can keep these valuable classes running all year long. We have around 40-50 children and young people attending regular workshops and rehearsals. We rent a storage room for all of our instruments at a local school within the community and use the school hall and field (weather dependent!) for our rehearsals.
2. Spread the samba love. We regularly take the children on outings to perform throughout Lagos (and beyond!) but don’t always get our costs met. We know how valuable it is for these young people to have a chance to showcase their talents and need your help to cover the cost of things like transportation.
3. Keep Èkó Samba Community going. Although most of the dedicated members of the community who contribute to ESC activities do so voluntarily, we need to fund the core staff who ensure a high quality of programme delivery all year round. As of this year, we now have five staff members on the ground in Lagos who are all young people that have come up through the project. We are thrilled to be able to have them on board as dedicated staff members. We are also continually fixing or making new drums and truly, every little counts.
We welcome your support in any shape or form! Your time and money can help Èkó Samba Community to achieve even more for children and young people in Lagos.
