Founded in 2004, A3D (African Development through Drum and Dance) started with a group of friends who traveled to Senegal, West Africa on a two week journey that forever changed their lives. After experiencing the sights and sounds of Africa, it became clear that many of the things we take for granted, most of the people there either never had or need more of, but will likely not be able to achieve without help from outside. Some of those things include medicines, school computers, and much more.

The A3D group is always looking for friends and volunteers who can put their skills to good use. We host an annual festival in Salem every July (complete with artists and vendors, musicians and performers, even a moon bounce), we raise money for useful items (desks and computers for a school in Senegal), to name a couple of active projects, and we have a good time doing all of this. We meet regularly in Salem, Massachusetts and welcome you and any guests you would like to invite to attend any and all of our gatherings. There, we discuss current projects, what needs to be done, and what we would like to do.

We look forward to meeting you soon.
