Educator Joi Jackson saw a need with young African-American girls in her school. She decided to help them with small “girl chats” and a cultural awareness curriculum. Her care turned into an organization called Fly Girls International. Not only are these young girls learning more about their African heritage, they are more socially aware of the larger global community. Results; more openness to the education process and a greater value of self. Joi credits her kids with being “hungry” for this type of atmosphere and welcomes others to be a part of their journey.
You can assist them with their upcoming trip to Africa by donating to www.FlyGirlsInternational.com
