Once the students complete their secondary education, they will be connected to the HBCU of their choice based upon qualifications and financial packages. The student will sign an agreement for an educational visa, with the understanding that they will go back and work to build their homeland with the foundation of a quality education and skillsets gained from HBCU’s. The Back to Africa Initiative looks to partner with HBCU’s that will assist in supporting the primary and secondary education of students in order to assist the efforts of the academy to execute the vision of Children Having Access to Nutrition Care & Education (C.H.A.N.C.E.) By doing this, the HBCU’s in turn help to ensure that higher education for the students is possible. The Back to Africa Initiative is designed to also give African children that are not underserved but un-served a chance and hope for a productive and prosperous future that impacts the world.
Upon earning their degrees, the students will be able to go back to their country empowered and equipped to help build and improve their nation. The other unique and powerful aspect of the Back to Africa Initiative is that it provides a microcosm of the Marcus Garvey initiative “Back to Africa”. Students will be able to study subject matters that will help to build their economic infrastructure and development with the assistance of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. This is a historical feat. Why? Because African-Americans are the only ethnic group that is not known for helping their indigenous homeland. This initiative allows us to partner with our brothers and sisters and empower them to rebuild the ruins of an underdeveloped Africa with the help of HBCU’s.
