All of the djembes on this page are hand crafted in West Africa by cultural artisans supported by the non-profit Africa Heartwood Project. Their sustainable livelihoods programs network with small scale traditional drum and instrument makers to provide business training, enhance product development, and improve access to international markets on the basis of fair trade and sustainability. DjembeDirect.com is proud to offer djembes from these cultural artisans, and to donate to underwrite all overhead expenses incurred by Africa Heartwood Project. For beginner, intermediate, and advanced djembes you will not find a better value for money spent than with an Africa Heartwood Project drum.
Your purchase of one of the djembes on this page will help to make a difference in not only continuing to provide jobs for the many artisans and their supply chain of vendors in Africa, but also in contributing to other humanitarian work in West Africa.
