Madjai - The Research Fund

Continue to support Bro. Jonathan Owens and the Madjai ARCHERS by helping to fund our endeavors in 2017.

ARCHERS stand for Academics, Research, Charity, Housing, Economics, Resources and Security.

So far your continued support has helped bring us to this point;

~Winning our first scholastic debate; Kemet On Trial, Harlem NY, 2015

~ In 2016 we launched our free informational website and added our first members at

~ The website promotes cooperative economics as authors sell books in the same digital store, sharing the same commerce links which helps the collective with each share

~In 2016 we hosted our first successful events bringing speakers into Oakland, Ca. from around the world. Dr. Maat, Sara Suten Seti, ZaZa Ali, Bro Ankhka, Sistah Iminah etc. all made presentations for the people of Oakland, Ca

 In Febuary of 2017 we began "Building Black Wall Street". Our concept of Building Black Wall Street includes all people who aspire to teach African American youth financial literacy.

We intend to;

~Build Black Wall Street
We will teach youth in “the hood” how to invest and trade stocks with little money. Teach how to open a business with little to no money. Teach how to build good credit. Teach how to buy Tax Lien Property.

Building Black Wall Street is about fighting financial illiteracy.  In addition to Building Black Wall Street we intend to host other community activities, workshops and events;
~Madjai Archery Achievement Team (Ma'at)

Teaching focus, accuracy and mental stability through marksmanship in Archery.
We'll use our 2000 sf warehouse to train young Archers for competition.

~E.O.A.C. East Oakland Anglers Club
Fishing is relaxing and time consuming. Just what our youth need. We intend to teach the youth to fish by hosting camping trips, fishing derbys and tournaments.

We're not asking you to fund a school, workshops etc. We already have facilities. We need funds for teachers, instructors, equipment, transportation & lodging etc.

We currently have access to an 8500 sq ft building in Oakland California that we will use to host classes, financial workshops and seminars that are practical for members of our community.
