Education Changes Everything
To whom much is given, much is expected. That means, wherever Black people are, we have a responsibility to use our resources in service to making sure we all have what we need to be well, to learn and grow strong, and to be free human beings. So impact on behalf of Black education and liberation must happen in our communities, whether locally or across the globe. Aside from having helped to develop educational access and opportunities in Mexico, Pakistan, Thailand, Japan and Ghana, my work and (re)membering in Ghana is now powerfully sustained by philanthropic efforts in the United States through our non-profit charitable (501)(c)(3) foundation, GIVE. BUILD. SHARE.
Organized in 2016, the goal of GIVE.BUILD.SHARE is to provide access and opportunity to education and health care in a high-need community in Ghana, West Africa. GIVE.BUILD.SHARE raises money through voluntary contributions of individuals, corporations, foundations, organizations and other institutions who support our central purpose of providing access and opportunity to education for children and families in Ghana, West Africa. And we put that money to work to create buildings and structures as beautiful and brilliant as the spirits of Black children everywhere.
