Working towards self-sufficiency

To achieve long-term sustainability the Music In Africa Foundation runs different offline projects based on fundraising models. The Foundation’s strategic plan for the next three years places key focus on diversifying its existing funding base by getting more partners and donors involved.

Current Partners

The website serves as a central meeting place for anyone interested in African music and also offers advertising services to businesses across the continent. Sustainability is addressed by the website’s content strategy, which relies partly on user-generated content. Music In Africa is active “offline” as well with workshops, concerts, or exchange programs.
