It takes a village of stakeholders and investors to prepare a child for market Leadership
We are part of that village
Diaspora Global Foundation is a non-profit 501(c) (3) certified educational organization. Our focus and mission is to serve the children of the African Diaspora globally. This desire was born out of the concern that although we have guided, supported and prepared our children for market participation, leadership and innovation, there remains countless of other children that have not received the level of support and guidance that is needed to move forward successfully in a competitive and expanding global marketplace.
In the spring of 2020, the covid 19 pandemic, caused a global shutdown of all public and private educational instructions in all grade levels. Many parents were unprepared for the shifting of the core responsibility of education back to the home. There was massive chaos when the entire global educational community was forced to adapt to the "new learning" normal. Without formal training or even regular practice, many families were left in crisis not fully understanding or willing to accept their new role as educators, coach and mentors in the lives of their children.
To us this was a painful reminder of how we have allowed our public educational system to manage our children's educational journey without us. In response to this crisis and the need for educational guidance, we created a series of educational podcast to provide information and to support parents though this transitional period. We invited parents, stakeholders, and market experts to participate in the conversations.
The response to our podcast series was very positive. However, we felt the need to do more and serve our communities and our children better. We started planning and strategizing. We focused on creating an organization that can give our children and their families more information, training and reso
In October of 2020, we founded Diaspora Global Foundation.
The work of the organization is to create educational programs and initiatives that will help close the educational gap in STEM, reading comprehension and financial literacy for our children and their parents, and to prepare our children for global market participation and leadership. Although our educational focus is STEM, the resources and tools we give them can be applied in any area of work or study.

“Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that
the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mine worker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farm workers can become the president
of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another.”
