The Jaliyaa Project: Ghana 2024

Empowering D.C.'s Youth, Strengthening Our Community

Transforming Lives and Perspectives
The Jaliyaa Project is not just a trip; it's a movement. Dedicated to empowering underserved young men aged 13-15 in Washington, D.C., this initiative aims to reshape their outlook on life and their role in the world. By immersing them in a profound cultural experience that explores African heritage and history, we strive to instill self-confidence, broaden horizons, and cultivate a deeper understanding of global interconnectedness.

Our Comprehensive Approach
From February to August, our program engages these young minds through:

In-depth Workshops: Delving into African history, culture, and the diaspora, these sessions aim to foster a sense of pride and identity.
Cultural Exposure in D.C.: Museum visits, local events, and interactive activities are designed to enrich and inspire, connecting the lessons to their immediate environment.
Ghanaian Expedition: The journey culminates in a transformative 10-day trip to Ghana. Here, participants will not only witness the legacy of their ancestors but also engage in hands-on learning through traditional arts, community interactions, and historical site visits.

Howard University Students' Role
In a unique collaboration, Howard University students will join and support the young participants. This partnership serves as a bridge between university life and local communities, fostering mutual mentorship, understanding, and unity.
