Friends and family of Toubab Krewe:
Instruments4africa is a not-for-profit (501c-3) organization formed to empower underprivileged and at-risk youth through educational opportunities and to preserve traditional music and the arts in Africa. Our goal is to facilitate creative cooperation between Africa and the world. We are a volunteer-managed, grassroots organization. Our center of operations is in Mali, West Africa, where we sponsor underprivileged youth to receive a quality education and mentoring in the arts. By focusing on the child, the family, the community, the culture and education, instruments4africa strives to create opportunities for youth to step out of the cycle of poverty, become leaders, and reach their highest potential.
