How To Help

Here are some ways how you can turn your passion for giving into action:

  • Join the Umkulo Mailing List! Click here.
  • Donate Resources
    • You may have a special skill or resource that could help The UMKULO Project more than you realize. If you offer a service, product or business that might be able to help us in our day-to-day operations, please contact us.
  • Donate Money — Yes, it is the same old song to sing for a nonprofit but we do need your support to sustain our work. Anything you can give, we are grateful to accept.
    • Money is what we’ll need to directly promote music education for children on the ground in Africa. Whether it’s $5 or $5,000, we are humbled that you are taking the time to give to this cause.

  • Spread the Word!

    • Right now we are promoting a Coin Campaign. This is where you raise awareness and coins to support The UMKULO Project. We’ll supply you with the tools and you implement the project! Contact us for more info.
    • We believe in your creativity and passion. You know your own budget, capabilities and life better than we do. So, feel free to come up with your own fund raising ideas in addition to the Coin Campaign and let us know how we can support you!
  • Invite us to your organization
    • We understand how it can be difficult to convey ideas like this to large audiences, so it might be easier to let us present The UMKULO Project to your peers. We would be honored to have the opportunity to speak at a community event, your local church, workplace or organization. If you are interested, please contact us!
