Kia Ora to our Kiwileles Community

The New Zealand Ukulele Trust is a not-for-profit organisation that uses the ukulele to enrich children’s lives through music.  Each year we help young people at schools around Aotearoa New Zealand get involved in music through our Kiwileles, Ukes in Schools, and NZ Ukulele Squad programmes.
