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.

Dear Friend,

 
I sincerely hope that you and your loved ones are doing well during this time of uncertainty, change, adjustment and crisis.
 
I understand that you are trying to cope with the current world crisis; I am coping by being more introspective and by also giving thanks for my blessings rather than focusing on the things I cannot change. I pray that you are managing your anxiety level and still doing the best you can. Please know that I am sending you love and light even when you do not hear from me.

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).

Tuesday, May 5, 2020 is a day designed to focus on generosity, citizen engagement, and support for communities around the world. Despite the #StayAtHome and #SocialDistancing orders, I am encouraging you to think about ways in which you can show generosity on that day, and in general. This act of giving can be in the form of helping a neighbor, sending a note of appreciation to an essential worker, giving an extra tip when you pick up food from a restaurant, advocating for an issue, sharing a skill, or giving to a charitable organization such as The Give Black Foundation . Our overall goal at this time is to ensure that at least 1000 we serve in Ghana have access to daily meals and essentials for the period April 1 to July 31, 2020. We are also selling authentic masks made in Ghana by some of the Ghanaians we serve for $10USD.  If you are interested in purchasing one, please email us at msrparke@gmail.com.

As I mentioned, we have started this work already and have provided meals to the Trinity Hope Orphanage in Tutu and to a community in Kumasi. We know that we can continue this work, with your help.  Even after the actual #GivingTuesdayNow has ended, we will continue the work because we are still committed to giving back to Blacks 24/7.
 
I hope that you will join me in promoting generosity and choose to support us as we continue to take care of those we serve in Ghana. Just hit the DONATE tab on this site or send us your donation by CashApp to $RosieParke.  If you also have a something special you want to say to our Villagers in Ghana, please send it and we will be sure to connect you with them.
 
Please take care of yourself and your loved ones and do not hesitate to reach out to me if you want to talk, or need something else. I really am here to serve.
 
With sincere gratitude,
 
Yaa Gyasi Peppy Parke
Executive Director & Founder

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.
