The Amaburuxa performances costs N$850.00 per group per show, and it is operating between 13h00 to 19h00 because of the school going learners, during holidays and weekends shows can start as early as from 07h00.

The funds raised are going towards hostel fees, school uniform, toiletries, supporting school projects. There are more plans in future as group got its own space to start other projects.

When group give their performances, the explanation is given in English on a meaning of songs before group sing the songs and before the last song the group give a quick background about itself.
