BTAC ARCHIVES 2024


 

It truly takes a village!


I am grateful for the unwavering support from both my BTAC Circle of Friends and the divine guidance of God, which enables us to work together and positively impact the lives of over 270 children in the Ashanti Region of Ghana on a daily basis. I extend my heartfelt thanks to the BTAC Board of Directors and Advisors for their continuous dedication and wisdom.
To all of you reading this message, your emotional and financial support has been instrumental in our ability to make a difference. It is because of each and every one of you that we can continue our mission. Thank you for being an integral part of this journey.

The night sky was a beautiful backdrop as behind-the-scenes celebrities came together to give back to the community.


They generously shared their knowledge, interacted with the children, and provided guidance for their leadership development. The Real Talk Sistah Circle sessions that kicked off in 2024 were truly impactful.

The support from the BTAC Circle of Friends has been incredible, and we are thankful to all our supporters who have encouraged their friends to give back during their time in Ghana.

We are truly inspired by the dedication and generosity of these behind-the-scenes celebrities. Their mentorship and contributions are making a significant impact on the lives of the children they are reaching. The BTAC Circle of Friends is grateful for their presence and the opportunities they have created for our children.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who made this event possible. We are excited to see the continued growth and success of our children as they embark on their own creative journeys.

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.

Greetings from Bridge to Africa Connection!


As we march into the new month, we are filled with confidence that our mission to focus on education in 2024 is being fulfilled. This Women’s Month, we are particularly proud to emphasize women and girl health, hygiene, and body awareness in Ghana. Our dedication to teaching young girls how to become empowered women is a source of immense pride for us.

March holds special significance for Ghana as it marks the celebration of Independence Day on March 6th. This historic day commemorates Ghana’s liberation from British colonial rule in 1957, a milestone led by Kwame Nkrumah. It symbolizes our nation’s journey towards sovereignty and freedom.

But March isn’t just about celebrating independence; it’s a month of growth and change, much like the changing seasons. We are excited to welcome visitors in the arts, fostering cultural exchange and creativity. Additionally, the inauguration of our new Learning Center signifies our unwavering commitment to education and empowerment in the community. As we embark on this journey through March, let us embrace the spirit of progress, celebration, and empowerment. Together, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of women and girls in Ghana and beyond.
