One priority for Jamii is to support projects that build power in communities impacted by poverty and to unify and uplift the lives of Afro-Latinos, African-Americans, Afro-Caribbeans, continental Africans and other black people across the globe. This featured project does all of that - and more!
Afro-Bilingüe is a component of a community economic development initiative for Afro-Colombians that emphasizes foreign language acquisition within five sectors: (1) education (2) workforce development, (3) health, (4) community engagement, and (5) visibility. The foreign-language curriculum will celebrate Afro-Latin@ heritage and allow participants to build international Pan-African connections within a culturally responsive space for language learning.
Are you interested in learning Spanish and/or teaching English in a context that celebrates the heritage of African descendants?
