The Schools Program

Fatherland foundation facilitates free afro-centric programs for ages 9-16 in summer or as an after-school activity. It instructs them on Africa’s Culture and Traditional Values and provides in-depth knowledge of a revered time-honored way of life. It is perceived as an opportunity to foster self-awareness of African descendants’ children, connect them to their roots, and bridge the history gap in the standard school syllabus and, for others, an appreciation of a culture other than theirs.
