Know Your Place in African Culture

African Awareness Is Our Goal

If your young people don't know their history, they may have a difficult time seeing their future. This is true of any group whose children may now be living in a country that is not their motherland. While assimilation is fine, knowledge of your origin gives you a sense of pride. We take seriously our job of teaching young people about their African heritage.

Our culture is being lost because it is not being passed along to younger generations. Dem Village, Inc. wants our youth to understand who they are and where they are going by teaching them about their African culture. One creative way we educate and inform is through the cultural music we perform for Queh Quehs.

Learn through Cultural Music

Education, arts and crafts, music, and field trips are instrumental in teaching others about African culture. Most of our ancestors came from Guyana, and we are trying to learn about our native culture ourselves. The work that we do takes money and effort, so we welcome any financial donations or volunteering you want to offer.
