Welcome to The Give Black Foundation
A community based organization dedicated to giving back to Blacks around the world. Founded in 2011, by humanitarian Rosie Peppy Parke aka Yaa Gyasi, the Foundation specializes in working with underserved children and individuals living in The Motherland (especially Ghana) and the Caribbean.
Since we officially launched in 2011 we have served an average of 1,000 children annually and have worked in Ghana, Kenya, Jamaica, Bahamas, Grenada, the Virgin Islands, USA and Canada. Our goal is to work with as many children living in Africa as we possibly can.
Please take a few moments to peruse our website or check us out on Facebook. We are always looking for individuals with a Pan African spirit to join our team and/or help us to grow so we can serve more.
As the country (and the world) continue to deal with this pandemic, it was announced that #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of giving and unity, will take place on May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the enormous need caused by COVID-19. As YOU know, I try to cultivate a culture of giving every day so while this day is significant, each day (for me) is a day to give of your heart (and whatever else you can).

On behalf of the children and families we will touch and serve while we are in Ghana, West Africa from May 23 to June 11, 2018, I THANK all of our amazing donors for their support to the “100 book bags & 100 flip flops” Drive. We wanted to raise enough funds to purchase 100 book bags and 100 flip flops, but we were blessed to purchase a total of 200 book bags and 150 flip flops including 50 of each purchased by our Executive Director & Founder, Rosie (Yaa Gyasi) Parke. We are almost packed and ready and will be donating 50 book bags and 50 flip flops to others who are giving back in Kenya and Jamaica. While in Ghana, we will also be volunteering at Akoma International Academy for a week — teaching a Girls’ Program and doing daily yoga, fitness and wellness.
Very many thanks to these awesome donors/supporters:
