One primary way in which we raise awareness and funds for our work in Africa is through local events, organized by volunteers. From World Music Benefit Concerts to drum circles to open mic nights, our communities have rallied to support these grassroots initiatives to make a difference. YOU are invited to be proactive and get involved! Please contact us to discuss your ideas for the next great Africa Heartwood Project fundraising event.
