We are addressing the financial challenges of individual/family needs. AJAPO and Afrika Yetu are accepting financial donations to distribute to those who meet the Initiative Guidelines for support.
We are working closely with Allegheny County and the City of Pittsburgh Public School systems to address the technology complications, educational gaps, and language barriers for families. This information will be available during distribution.
We will continue to combine resources to provide this service for the duration of the pandemic. Our mission is to provide assistance to the African Diaspora. It is imperative that we continue to work together and show our ancestral principles like Unbuntu and Sankofa. We must see ourselves through each other before we return to normalcy.
