Sponsorship programme - make a difference

Africa is a vast continent with many challenges. The divide between rich and poor is self-evident and many children never have the opportunities offered in the developed world.

Our Sponsorship Programme gives you the chance to make a difference in the lives of young African people. Good communication is the key to success in Africa and with your assistance you will help open up a new world of opportunity.

Our proactive drama programme gives Africa's youth a head start by harnessing acting talent and teaching valuable communication skills. Developed with over 30 years of experience in education, our international programme does make a difference to the lives of young people.

What will you get?

  • You will have the opportunity to become involved in one of our projects to develop young people from disadvantaged areas.
  • You will receive regular reports and updates about the progress of the child/children from the Principal.


Most importantly, you will be allowing a child or children's dreams to come true.

How does it work?

Single Sponsorship

You offer a year's Sponsorship for one child at roughly US $200. This will allow a child to receive a year's tuition and transport costs to attend one of the Academy's studios.

Studio Sponsorship

The Academy is always keen to operate the programme in disadvantaged areas of Africa.
You can sponsor part or the entire running costs of a particular studio in a disadvantaged area. Our Principals will ensure that our improvement programme will have maximum impact within a designated area. The benefactor will know that the highest international standards will be maintained through international network.

Business Partnerships

There will be maximum publicity for businesses who wish to make a difference. By building partnerships with business, we can together make a difference to the development of young people in Africa.
