UWe believe that the Children of the  African Diaspora, here in the US, and globally are at an educational deficient and therefore severe disadvantage with regard to overall education and preparedness for future market participation, innovation and leadership.

 

Our commitment through the Diaspora Global Foundation is to collaborate and create programs and synergies to address these 4 core educational deficits  through a single structural "holistic" learning component, "THE STEM INITIATIVE".

Th STEM initiative is comprised of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.  The study of STEM requires the further integration of reading & comprehension, applied science, art, creativity, vision, purpose, culture, and  financial literacy.

 Foundations that support STEM

ART & CULTURE - Black Child.jpg

ARTS/CULTURE/MUSIC

Understanding one's roots, global contribution in STEM, (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) is a foundational necessity to understanding, accepting, and celebrating who you are in the diversity of humanity. Using artistic tools such as music, arts, reading, storytelling, the children will be able to enhance their cognitive learning skills and increase learning capacity in STEM education.

READING

A child's capacity to read well and comprehend that which has been read is a fundamental tool for learning STEM.

The Foundation's mission is to strengthen the children's capacity to learn by assisting them in developing greater reading and comprehension skills through daily STEM application. Tools for this will be the reading tutorials with tutors. Audiobooks, and age-appropriate reading comprehension curriculum that focuses on the development of comprehension faculties in STEM.
