Instruments for Africa
The D’Addario Foundation has provided in-kind product donations to Instruments for Africa since 2015. The organization collects musical instruments of all kinds, stands, accessories, sheet music, and instructional material, then evaluates and services the donations before distributing them to students and schools in need across Africa.
“I’d like to take a moment to personally thank everyone at The D’Addario Foundation for the several generous product donations you have donated to our project. We recently returned from our first trip to Ghana where we distributed over 250 instruments and another 300 recorders among thirteen schools and the Ghanaian National Orchestra, and I can’t tell you how pleased I was to add vast amounts of reeds and strings to these donations. A few years ago I visited a school in Zambia that was in possession of just two reeds for their pair of clarinets that the students had been sharing for more than ten years; so you see how desperate it can get. I left them with two boxes of your donated Rico reeds, which got a heck of a joyous response!” – Todd Snelgrove, Founder
