We are excited to be have connected with relief teams on the ground in Zambia who have made us aware of the need for instruments in the educational programs they make available to orphans in their care. On this particular project, some strong logistical obstacles have been solved so we are fortunate to be able to deliver a greater number of instruments than usual on a mission to Africa!
Help us take advantage of this opportunity by personally sponsoring an instrument for an orphan. Your gift will give a child the opportunity to pursue their dream of learning and playing an instrument. We’d love to deliver 30 instruments to this orphanage this year! So far, we have a great start with seven set to go out!
THREE WAYS TO SPONSOR an instrument for an orphan:
- $38 Monthly – with a gift of $38/month for the rest of 2017 (8 gifts), you can equip one orphan with his or her own instrument. We’ll send you a photo back after the eighth gift. You can set up your monthly gift here: instrumentsofjoy.org/donate-money
- $300 one-time gift – Equips one orphan with one instrument. A picture of the orphan and instrument you sponsored will be sent to you. Click here to make a one-time gift.
- Donate an instrument – A picture will be sent to you with your instrument in the hands of it’s new owner in Zambia. Click here to find out how to donate your instrument.
WHY THIS IS A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY
We are excited that, not only do we get to deliver instruments in Zambia for the first time but we have the opportunity to effect so many who aspire to learn and study music but have never had the chance. So far we have seven quality musical instruments lined up and a lot of instruction materials to be delivered. Instruction materials have been donated by our generous partner Gibson’s Legacy Learning Systems and as well a private donor Ella Beasley. The orphanage has multiple programs to instruct young students in music, however they have made us aware there is need for more instruments. On schedule to be delivered are: five guitars and two electric keyboards but there is room for much more! The goal of 30 instruments would be an amazing answer to their need. That is why we are asking for your help and extending the invitation to you to sponsor a child who has never had much to call their own, let alone something as beautiful and personal as a musical instrument. There are over one million orphans in Zambia. We are grateful we can partner with organizations to, not only meet the physical needs of orphans, but also to meet spiritual needs using the gift of music. Any musician would agree that music can speak more to a person’s soul than words because it speaks in ways that others things just can’t do. Thanks for your consideration in giving the gift of music to an orphan in Zambia.
