🌍 Welcome to the
BRIDGE-TO-AFRICA CONNECTION 2024 Igniting Leadership in African Youth!
As we embark on this transformative journey, our 2024 plan is driven by the pillars of Education, Determination, and Fortitude, echoing the heartbeat of our theme: Shifting Lives Despite Circumstances.
📚 *Education:* Leadership calendars will captivate the dynamic minds aged 8 to 18, offering a month-by-month exploration of knowledge, unlocking the full potential of our young leaders.
💪 *Determination:* Through mentorship programs, workshops, and hands-on experiences, we’ll fuel the determination of our youth. They’ll learn that obstacles are stepping stones to success, and setbacks are setups for comebacks.
🌟 *Fortitude:* Our guidance will instill fortitude and resilience, empowering African children to face adversity with courage. Our programs will transform challenges into opportunities for growth.
🎉 The impact extends beyond education! BTAC proudly supports a network of nine schools, becoming beacons of hope. Three libraries offer portals to every child. Two feeding programs, nourishing bodies and dreams, recognize the power of a well-fed mind.
In the heart of Feyaïse, BTAC’s clinic is a symbol of our holistic development commitment, ensuring every child has access to essential healthcare.
🔥✨ Join us in 2024 as BTAC amplifies our impact, lighting the path to leadership, one school, one library, one meal, and one healthy child at a time. Together, we are the BRIDGE-TO-AFRICA CONNECTION, creating a storm of positive change!
“I am not African because I was born in Africa but because Africa was born in me.”
In the heart of February
BTAC (Bridge to Africa Connection) eagerly anticipates a month filled with cultural celebration and enlightenment. The focus extends beyond the richness of Ghana’s chocolate and cocoa to the profound journey of identity for Africans and those in the diaspora. Children in Ghana engage in a jump rope contest, embracing their Ashanti heritage with love and respect. BTAC passionately intertwines African-American studies with local Californian history, emphasizing the importance of preserving culture and history. KHLOETINES Day symbolizes unity, gratitude, and purpose, as BTAC continues to instill leadership principles in the younger generation. This February is a testament to the enduring commitment to heritage and self-worth.
Bridge-To-Africa Connection is extremely excited to Start our Ashay University Program

BTAC have adopted 8 Villages/Towns in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. We provide Scholarships and funding to help over 294 Children in the Ashanti Region. We focus on the academic and social well being of the children so at times we find ourselves supporting the entire family just to ensure that the child can go to school. Most of the parents / guardians are hand laborers, petty traders and hawkers making less than $2 per day.

WODA MAYA visits BTAC
Cut adventurously across Ghana by starting from Accra and driving up to the Aburi Botanical Gardens and moving through nature sites on the Akuapem Mountains, moving on to Kumasi in the Ashanti Region to visit the royal palace of the Asantehene and the royal adinkra and kente weavers and sellers, the woodcarvers and artisans; then finishing up with a trip to the forts and castles of Elmina and Cape Coast as well as the last slave bathing point of Assin Manso and a Canopy walk experience.
It draws a triangle, but the experiences, sights and sounds you will enjoy on this trip is going to be a full circle of unforgettable memories. For detailed itineray

Thanks @fuseodg for this line of dolls.
Founded by Afrobeats Superstar Fuse ODG, Nana Dolls is on a mission to champion the beauty of Africa and promote self-love, especially in young children.
Children are highly influenced by the world around them, and so it is our job to make sure we give them the best foundation to build on, teaching them to love themselves and be proud of who they are.
What better way to instill this ‘self-love’ than through their favorite toys.
Nana Dolls have made it their goal to inspire children to love and take pride in their heritage in a world that makes it hard to do so at times, educating and empowering them through Nana Dolls and their stories.
“The dolls are inspired by historical African figures; brave and courageous women who did something extraordinary. It is vital for our children and future generations to know about these powerful women in history”
The key philosophy is: Impacting one woman will impact her entire family. The family will impact the village, thereby building the bridge to an enriching, healthy society.
