All Support Matters

Not everyday you come across an opportunity to change a person's life for the better. Our goal is to allow the lives of select adolescent youth to experience a hands on developmental exhibition in South Africa. Through person to person interaction, a plethora of events, and immersing themselves into the culture, we intend to provide an authentic experience.
The learning potential for all those who are involved in this abroad trip is very high. Thanks to a combined effort from our team leader, Akeem Lloyd and AkeemSpeaks, LLC , as well as the Ripples of Hope organization (www.ripplesofhope.org). His vision for the trip is a part of a goal that he has continued to work passionately toward: breaking the cycle of self oppression among African American youth in order to empower them for a brighter future. He states "All students are artist, painters, paintbrushes, and it is our jobs as educators, adults, community members, and citizens to support them. It is our social responsibility to provide them with the colors that will help them paint the world they wish to live in."
Help us connect our students with a part of the world which they may not have thought was attainable. It really takes a village. In order for our goal to be achieved, no donation is too small. Your investment will make a HUGE IMPACT!!!!!
