Sankofa, eine neugegründete bilinguale Berliner Kita für Kinder zwischen 1 und 6 Jahren, die sich insbesondere für die Bedürfnisse von Kindern afrikanischer Herkunft einsetzt, ist auf der Suche nach Sponsoren!

Ziel von Sankofa ist es, einen geschützten Raum für Schwarze Kinder zu schaffen, in dem sie sich frei und ohne Hemmungen entwickeln und ein gesundes Selbstbewusstsein aufbauen können. Wir möchten eine Umgebung schaffen, in der sich Kinder sicher und willkommen fühlen, unabhängig von ihrem kulturellen Hintergrund.

Den Kindern soll das Gefühl vermittelt werden, dass sie alles erreichen können, was sie sich erträumen! Wir denken, dass unser pädagogischer Ansatz einen wichtigen Beitrag dazu leisten kann, den negativen Gefühlen, die Kinder afrikanischer Herkunft oftmals aufgrund von Alltagsrassismus entwickeln entgegenzuwirken. Gefühlen wie Selbstzweifel, Einsamkeit und Unbedeutsamkeit.

In den von uns ausgewählten Büchern, Puppen und weiteren pädagigischen Materialien sollen sie positive Identifikationsmöglichkeiten finden und somit eine Chance bekommen, sich selbst und ihre Herkunft zu zelebrieren.

Wir benötigen Ihre finanzielle Unterstützung, um die Startfinanzierungskosten decken zu können.

    - Umbau und Renovierung
    - Ausstattung
    - Bücher und Spielzeuge
    - Teambuilding und Fortbildungen

It takes a village to raise a child - werden Sie ein Teil davon!

Sankofa Kita, a newly founded daycare for children between the ages of 1 and 6 in Berlin, Germany, is seeking financial support for the launch of it's Afrodiasporic and bilingual early childhood program! 

Sankofa's vision for this program is to create a safe space for Black children in which they may develop without inhibitions and cultivate a healthy sense of self! 
Sankofa is devoted to establishing an environment in which children can express themselves without feeling unsafe or unwelcome because of their cultural background.  

It is Sankofa's mission to instill a firm belief in children of African heritage that they matter and that they can be whoever they want to be! Sankofa believes this approach is needed to deflect the impact racism can have on Black children in Germany. An impact that often contributes to feelings of invisibility, insignificance, and inferiority within Black people and other people of color.

By providing books, toys and dolls in which they can see positive images and reflections of themselves, Sankofa provides children of African heritage a chance to celebrate themselves.

Your donations would be greatly appreciated to help with the starting costs of this program.

It takes a village to raise a child and we would like you to become a part of our village!

This is so important. Positive images about your race from a really young age is critical to an endearing positive self image.
