Africa: Pathway to Greatness
Launching on May 25th #AfricaDay, and lasting through June 19th #Juneteenth, the entire Birthright AFRICA network is working to raise $100,000 to provide the Birthright experience for 20 young people of African descent!
Africa: Pathway to Greatness is Birthright AFRICA’s annual fundraising campaign to provide the birthright experience for 20 young people of African descent. We are committed to providing the free life-changing educational trip to Africa for every youth and young adult of African descent ages 13 - 30 and would love for you to be a part of this movement!
Birthright AFRICA is a heritage-based leadership development program that connects young people of African descent to their cultural roots. Research shows that people of the African Diaspora are consistently forced to place their origins in the context of slavery and colonization, rather than a true understanding of their African ancestral greatness and legacy of innovation throughout history. The current educational system is under attack, riddled with misinformation about Black people in America, and an unwillingness to acknowledge the impacts of systemic racism. In the workplace, DEI initiatives fail for lack of support from the C-suite, which directly correlates to the fact that less than 2% of U.S. executives, managers, and entrepreneurs are of African descent!
When you join the Africa: Pathway to Greatness campaign, you create a legacy of your own by investing in the next generation of change-makers, global leaders and entrepreneurs of the 21st century who are proud, confident, connected to the continent.
