IDF runs as a self-sustainable social business, generating income through open dance classes for the general public and at international schools, as well as commercial performance bookings for public and private functions. These small revenue streams combined allow us to cover our basic running costs and to produce new artistic works on our dancers. (The Ibuka theatre and facilities were constructed through private loans, a crowdfunding campaign and fundraiser performances.)
At this time, after self-funding the scholarship training program for 2 years resulting in 12 diploma graduates, we now require additional funds to continue to run the program.
How You Can Help
In order to raise the additional funds to continue the training program and fund new creations, we urge you to give a one time donation through our Ibuka PayPal account, or an ongoing monthly donation through our Patreon page to sponsor a dancers education and future, and receive some great gifts like signed Ibuka posters and calendars.
You can also donate time, your skills or needed material towards the new dance centre. Ask us how you can help!
You can support us by buying a t-shirt! They are 100% cotton and come in a wide variety of colours for kids and adults. Prices: Tanzania 20,000tsh / USA 20$ / Canada 25$
