ABRSM’s International Sponsorship Fund
ABRSM created their annual International Sponsorship Fund (ISF) in 2012 as part of its commitment to inspire musical achievement and support music education globally. All chosen projects provide high quality musical training experiences, from performance opportunities to teacher development. The ISF particularly seeks to support projects that tackle barriers to accessing these opportunities.
We applied for ABRSM’s International Sponsorship Fund to provide scholarships for women musicians of The Kenya Conservatoire Women's Orchestra, and we are happy to announce that we are one of the four 2021 recipients of the fund!
A word from our director :
"There is a need for diversification of activities and platforms for women to express themselves. The value and respect for women in society need diverse forums to re-invent and redirect societal perspectives on what women do or can do. To safeguard the value and rights of women and create opportunities for healing through music and connection, The Kenya Conservatoire Women's Orchestra is determined to advocate and build social nets and create a platform in response to the above-mentioned concerns.
We hope to achieve this through the mentoring of young women in leadership through scheduled rehearsals, team building and performances. We strive to bridge a generational understanding of, and awareness for, women empowerment through music."
