about her journey
Our theme this year combines a focus of both our educational and international initiatives. For the past 3 years Fathers
Incorporated has supported the effort of L.E.A.P For Ghana (Literacy Empowerment Action Project). LEAP is charged with providing innovative literacy, school improvement, and youth development programming to expand educational opportunities and strengthen developing communities.
This year’s gala feature will be a short documentary called “A Queen’s Discovery: A Young Girl’s African Journey To Find Her Greatness Within”. The film follows this year’s LEAP mission and the perspective of 16-year-old Nzinga Anasa Braswell. Our effort is an ambitious, multi-phase literacy, school improvement and youth development agenda for the village of Konko in Ghana, Africa and the students of Timber Nkwanta SDA School.
The film follows this year’s LEAP mission and the perspective of 16-year-old Nzinga Anasa Braswell. Her journey was the first to the country of Africa and she gives a unique comparison between her black American experience as a youth and what she discovered in Africa.
As a result of Nzinga’s travel she has committed to raising funds for the Nikki Giovanni Scholarship Fund. The scholarship Provides financial assistance for qualified students to attend secondary school; Pays for tuition, boarding, travel, book, and other school related fees; Offers mentorship to motivate students to perform well in and out of the classroom as they explore their talents, interests and passions
