Mentoring Program

Students learning traditional Malian percussion

Instruments 4 Africa will donate quality instruments to master musicians in our mentoring program. The master musician will trade hours of community service by taking on apprentice student(s), giving them musical and life training.  We have identified several pre-existing community centers where children can come for a nutritious breakfast and after receive musical training.  We encourage the relationship to continue outside the class setting with students being invited to play weddings or baptisms with their teacher. The apprentice program could lead to an even greater benefit:  getting children off the street, into school and into a family’s care.
