Our Afrikan Family mission is to empower and embrace under served youth and communities by reclaiming, restoring and revitalizing the cultural heritage, values and identity. Our Afrikan Family is a place where people convene, connect and celebrate the essence of our community in order to bring about healing to create prosperous, vibrant lives. We understand it takes a village to raise a child and live by EACH 1TEACH 1.
Our Afrikan Family specializes in working with diverse people and cultures residing in urban areas. Children and youth will participate in an ongoing development process that will expose them to various environments and open their minds to a new way of thinking and living.
Programs will be held within safe child and youth friendly schools, community centers, religious buildings, or other available facilities. These buildings will be used until Our Afrikan Family has its own facility.
We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you. Thank you for your time and donations that makes this possible!
