Building a sovereign grassroots organisation with your help

As President of the African Heritage Foundation (AHF), a grassroots organisation now approaching its second anniversary, I believe that collectives such as ours have become too dependent on international funding agencies.

Barbados independence educational system challenge, 50yrs and moving.
