Sponsor a Local Child’s Drum Lesson

The Garifuna culture is under threat, and the language, dance and music of the Garifuna people have been designated by UNESCO as part of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in need of protection.

Warasa offers lessons to local children for a very small price in order to cover costs, but sadly still some local children cannot afford to pay.  If you would like to sponsor a local child with real interest in learning, the send us an email to warasadrumschool@gmail.com, or click on the “Donate” button below and leave us a message to let us know how many months you are providing sponsorship for.

Suggested sponsorship amounts (for at least one lesson per week):

  • $25USD: One child for one month
  • $45USD: One child for two months
  • $120USD: One child for six months
