A legacy of innovation 400 years in the making...

Birthright AFRICA was founded on the principle that all youth and young adults of African descent in the United States should receive a free trip to the continent of Africa to develop a connection to the dynamic history and culture of their ancestral roots. In 2018, Birthright AFRICA continues its partnership with the nation's largest city college system, the City University of New York (CUNY), by working with CUNY's Office of Special Programs to offer free birthright opportunities to young men and women of African descent. Participating Scholars travel to Cultural Sites, Museums, Universities, and Innovation Partners reflecting the resilience and brilliance of people of African descent in New York and Washington, D.C. before embarking on a 10-day trip to Ghana in August.

The cost to send one participant to the continent is $3,000, so every dollar is a "Seed of Sankofa" that helps provide a return to ancestral lands. With your support we can offer youth and young adults of African descent in the US Diaspora a life changing trip for free to Ghana and other nations that builds their lasting connection to the African legacy and its innovative future. Give today and help create the next generation of proud and confident global leaders and entrepreneurs of African descent.
