Manga African Dance always takes a pleasure to host the Volunteer Appreciation Day. This is the time of the year when we officially recognize the force behind Manga's growth:

the volunteers.



Volunteer Appreciation Day

Our Volunteers

They are company members , board members, friends of Manga, support, collaborators, and partners.

Manga would like to acknowledge the hard working volunteers who gave their time, efforts, advice, technical support to help the company fulfill its mission. Without these volunteers, Manga would have been able to accomplish its annual goals of promoting African cultures and serving the Atlanta community.


The Drake House

Manga African Dance will give a special award to the Dake House for its amazing work for the community, and for bringing extracurriculaire activities to the youth with the established collaboration with Manga African Dance. Click here to learn more about the drake House.
