Our work is mostly with children, young people and the elderly. The closure of schools, government regulations on social distancing and isolation have resulted in unprecedented cancellations or indefinite postponement of all our activities, especially school bookings that form the bulk of our earned income. The cancelled bookings and projects are now having an existential financial impact on the company due to frozen income.


Your donation will: -Help keep IROKO afloat and be able to meet some of our overheads and running costs. - Enable IROKO to be innovative and develop new ways of meeting the demands of the community, who are requesting for online -IROKO resources during these difficult times while people are staying at home and or self-isolating. - Help to stabilise IROKO and enable the company to continue to deliver its much needed educational, heritage, health and wellbeing activities, post COVID-19 pandemic.
