Sistahs Inspiring Positivity (SIP) Event

We would like to sincerely THANK everyone who donated and supported our Sistahs Inspiring Positivity (SIP) held on Saturday, March 30, 2019. There were so many who donated but could not attend, and so many who attended but did not leave their name in a legible format for us to decipher. Be that as it may, we raised enough to purchase at least 3 computers for Akoma International Academy and we are still fundraising as we would LOVE to take 10 computers with us to Ghana in May 2019. You can still donate right here at Do not forget that we still have the awesome painting created by Reshada Pullen-Jireh (acrylic on canvas, 24″x36″) up for auction. Current bid is $500. Please email if you would like to place a bid. Bids close on April 15, 2019.

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:
