ADNExUS was formed in 2014 out of a need to bring together Dominican civic groups of like mind in the New Jersey area tofocused on contributing to the development of Dominica in a cohesive and purpose driven manner.
Our objective is to Identify and support programs that promote the island of Dominica and its people both here and at home in the areas of education through scholarships to young Dominicans; community outreach with a focus on Dominican businesses and the more mature Dominicans; and tourism through cultural and destination educational programs.
The Founding Membership (Board of Directors) comprise representatives of the civic groups: George Seaman, Dominica United Cricket Club; Sabeniah Mingo, Know Your Culture Dance Troupe and Jenna David, Bernard Brown and Sylma Brown, Northeast USA Wesley Committee. Shortly thereafter the Board welcomed Heather Etienne and Allan Browne of Know Your Culture Dance Troupe and Darius Moses of North American Association for the Advancement of LaPlaine to its membership.
When disaster strikes in Dominica or a need becomes evident, mobilizes it’s community contacts to partner with it to satisfy that need. We have provided medical supplies to the Princess Margaret Hospital, outfitted the Home for the Elderly in St. Joseph with a commercial stove; provided finishing equipment to the Dominica Arts and Crafts Producers Association; provided computers to the Dominican Coalition of Service Industries; and relief supplies in the wake of both Tropical Storm Erika and Hurricane Maria.
