It's all about empowering children and families of the african diaspora through language!

by Tanaka Adeyemo in Salford, England, United Kingdom

Hi everyone, 

My name is Tanaka Adeyemo. I am a mother, wife and budding businesswoman. I work full time, I blog and I also decided to create a business that would allow families of the African diaspora to reconnect with their roots, feel empowered and empower the younger generation through learning their heritage languages. I started with a vision of creating flashcards for as many African languages as possible and I dove in. Currently we have 2 languages available (Yoruba & Shona) and I am working on adding another 3 languages soon. I want to go bigger though. I plan on adding activities to the mix so learning can be even more interactive for families and children.

Your donation will help:

  • Pay for more educators who will help with adding more African languages to the offering,
  • Create more activities that families can use whilst teaching their children such as posters and print games,
  • With the creation of Rudo's box subscription where everything is packed in one, giving families even more

My hope is that by creating a safe space for learning the language of their heritage, families will create a safe space for conversations and in that space, the younger generation can begin to ask and find out more about where they come from. I personally feel this is so important for that sense of self and understanding who you are, and it can empower children. 

Whilst I have been able to fund everything myself up to this point, funding is becoming a limiting factor to what I want to achieve for African families. Money is needed to be able to work with educators to get the cards created and make sure the translations are accurate. I want to provide the very best products I can to customers and to be able to do that I will need your help & support. The target goal will help me with carrying on the work I started using my own money for everything.
