An important part of Drumananda’s mission is giving back
OUTREACH and GLOBAL CONNECTIONS
In the Human Suffering index created by the Population Crisis Committee, the world living conditions in the 27 countries with the most extreme human suffering, 20 are found in Africa. In many African countries, people live on less than $1 a day, lack access to clean water, basic nutrition, health care or education.
Drumananda believes in cultivating ways to actively unite and link the human family. In response to this suffering and in gratitude for the joy and beauty of African music and culture we have been given, we seek to build international bridges in the small ways we can. This reciprocity is also an hommage to our African teachers who have worked tirelessly as cultural ambassadors by leaving their homeland to share and preserve this music all over the world.
That is why it is an important part of Drumananda’s mission to invite our students to not only learn cultural appreciation for this music, but to honor the importance of our global connections, share resources and see the possibilities of human transformation when we share together. Drumananda hosts fund-raising projects and tithes a portion of its income to projects helping to ease the suffering and poverty of Mother Africa. These are three of the organizations we have chosen to support:
If you feel so inspired to make a contribution to any of these projects, know that small amounts will benefit them
greatly as there is little to no overhead, so money goes more directly to the project expenses.
One easy way to donate is to choose one of these organizations as your facebook birthday fundraiser.

Drumananda has built an international network of drum contacts.
