Support us

Because many of our beneficiaries are needy, thus the inability to pay for music services, IMLS finds it a challenge to promptly pay salaries and allowances to the teachers who perform the tremendous tasks. Therefore, the school partly relies on voluntary work. We for that reason call upon all ladies and gentlemen who wish to share their expertise and professionalism with us while at the same time acquiring a valuable experience to contact us. This would be a great contribution to the development of IMLS. We are looking forward to seeing you!

Reasons why IMLS needs your support

Most of our students are orphans and vulnerable children who cannot afford to pay for the lessons thus study for free, yet the school has to run, thus seeking for support.

From the different children and youths, IMLS is grooming different music groups namely: Orchestra, Brassband, Children’s Choir, Adult choir and the traditional dances troupe. The different groups can stage performance as a fundraising strategy of the school.

From the different children and youths, IMLS is grooming different music groups namely: Orchestra, Brassband, Children’s Choir, Adult choir and the traditional dances troupe. The different groups can stage performance as a fundraising strategy of the school.
For each of those groups, there is a need for uniforms and costumes which make the children look smarter while on stage. Currently we have only manage to raise costumes for the traditional dance group but other groups are still missing. Anyone to support in this cause shall be highly appreciated.

We lack enough funds to pay for staff salaries because due to the enormous number of children that keep rising all the time, there is necessity for a large number of staff to provide good services to the children. However, with the little funds available, and with FMK support, we can only pay a few staff members and the rest help at their will and convenience as volunteers, for which they are paid a small token within our means. However, such people are unreliable as they may move to a permanent well paying job if availed with one. But if they are confirmed as staff with a good salary, that would be good security for them, for our children, and for the organization as a whole.

The school currently has one room for both administrative work and lessons. For that reason therefore most of the lessons are carried on outside and in tree shades. However, lessons become impossible during the rainy season.
The good news related to this is that construction of an enormous building for the school has already started. It is a 5-storey structure but our wish is to occupy when at least the basement flow has been completed. Then the rest of the upper floors will be constructed concurrently when the building is in use. Construction of the ground floor top shrub is done and now in progress is inner plastering of the rooms. Any support in this cause would be highly appreciated to complete the construction as soon as possible.

With our objective of bringing music skills to all corners of our society, through the schools music outreach programs, we transport teachers and instruments to various primary and secondary schools to deliver our lessons there by use of our school van, a super custom vehicle. The increasing number of students demands for more instruments and more teachers/volunteers. However, the van has become too small to accommodate the large numbers of teachers/volunteers and instruments required to fully serve all the students successfully. Thus the need for another bigger vehicle.
