About Us

What Is Kissidugu?

Kissidugu — a “safe place” or “place of refuge” — in the Kissi language of Guinea, West Africa.

We are The Kissidugu Foundation, a nonprofit organization. Our mission is to create sustainable and equitable opportunities for individuals and communities to access and promote cultural arts through music, dance, education and civic dialogue. The Foundation intends to inspire people of all colors, cultures, and backgrounds to connect to themselves, to one another, and to their community.
