Birthright AFRICA, a nonprofit organization based in New York City, offers free trips to Africa for youth and young adults of African descent looking to explore their cultural roots.
Formed in 2015, by co-founders Walla Elsheikh and Diallo Shabazz, Birthright AFRICA’s heritage-based leadership program inspires Scholars to draw pride, confidence, and creativity from their cultural roots and legacy of innovation in the U.S. and Africa. Our vision is for every young person in America of African descent to know the birthright opportunity awaits as they come of age. Over the past three years, Birthright AFRICA has been committed to providing a free educational trip to Africa for every youth and young adult of African descent ages 13 – 30 in the United States. With partners including the City University of New York (CUNY) and Frederick Douglass Academy VII High School as well as community-based organizations GrowHouse NYC, Urban Sankofa Project, and Inspiring Minds, 61 Scholars of African descent have received their birthright to explore the resilience and brilliance of their heritage.
What it takes to take a birthright trip to Africa
To take a birthright trip to Africa, you have to be a US citizen and between 13 to 30 years old.
You also have to be of African descent; this includes African American, Afro-Caribbean, Afro-Europeans, Afro-Asian and Afro-Latinx, according to Elsheikh.
"We consider all black people of African descent," Elsheikh said. "Our target groups are those who have been negatively impacted by the traumatizing enslavement and colonization of black people." Birthright AFRICA collaborates with high school, college, or community-based organization who are then considered "partners." These educational partners select the participants and the country they will visit as part of the Birthright AFRICA program.
Anyone who isn't already a part of one of these education partners can register through the Birthright AFRICA website which will then redirect them to a partner in their area with available spaces where they can apply.
Those who take the trip to Africa get to go for free -- flights, hotels, food, and costs of museums are covered by Birthright AFRICA and the educational partners.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
Change the world for the better, take care of it, because you live in it!
