Wave - an app which allows you to send funds directly from the USA or Canada to Kenya using your credit card. Once you download the free app, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for the number of our financial accountant, who will then deposit funds into El Sistema’s Kenya account and send you a receipt for the donation from El Sistema
SimbaPay - only available for donations from the UK, but works very similarly to Wave and money can be deposited directly in our bank account
PayPal - Email us at email@example.com for the Director's account, who will then deposit funds into El Sistema Kenya’s account and send you a receipt for the donation from El Sistema Kenya

We are also always looking for more instruments, music stands and other supplies, so if you know of anyone who would be willing to donate these items, please ask them to contact us as well. We appreciate all our supporters and a little really goes a long way!
El Sistema Kenya is a registered not-for-profit organization in Kenya (CPR/2014/147210)
Each instrument purchased or donated allows us to enroll 3 new students and will go a long way towards helping us expand our program to other areas in Nairobi and across the country. Also, a donation of $300 will help support one of our teachers for one month! We will send a receipt for each donation for your tax purposes.
