|Ayensudo Akoma International Academy of Arts and Sciences|
At Joseph Littles Nguzo Saba Charter School we believe in connecting with our local, national and international communities in order to foster strong relationships to better our collective future. As an African Centered School, we feel it is our duty to connect with other African Centered schools in order to build a strong African Centered community. One such relationship that we have fostered is with our sister school, Ayensudo Akoma International Academy of Arts and Sciences. Our sister school is located in Ghana and is very similar to our school. The Ghanaian school has a population of approximately 200 students in grades K-9. Also like our school, it was founded by an African American who felt it necessary to infuse African culture and history into curriculum.
Since 2010 we have taken several steps to nurture our connection. In May 2011 our Imhotep and Aset leadership groups held a car wash in order to raise money for the tuition of students attending the Akoma Academy. With the help of our founder, the board, staff and students we raised $3,500 for our sister school. Those funds are being used to help students attend school for a full year. Also our students are staying connected. We are sending letters from Florida to Ghana in order to develop international relationships between our students. Students have sent and received several letters so far with this positive campaign.
In the future we look to build even stronger ties with our sister school and other African Centered institutes of learning.
