Who we are & What we do
Akuɔba / Akwaaba (Welcome) to the Fawohodie Sua Pan-Afrikan Educational Online Co-op Classes! "Fawohodie" is from the Twi language of the Akan People in Ghana, West Afrika, and it means- "independence, liberation". "Sua", also Twi, translates to "Learn, to learn". We are an Afrikan-centered educational co-operative institution of independent Afrikan instructors and determined Families who have come together to provide quality, affordable classes for our global Afrikan community by way of the internet.
Our objectives are to connect like-minded Afrikan-centered homeschooling families, local co-operatives, or independent schools from anywhere from around the world with outstanding, relevant classes which will elevate our students to the highest level of proficiency that will ensure maximum production in the Afrikan World Community achieving this by our shared values and on our own terms...in other words- contributing to cultivate a Nation of Sovereignty-builders!
This website is also the home of our ADESUA AKURAA, which is a virtual "Edu-Village" whose primary goals are to provide support, resource information and a means for networking, sharing, learning and working together with other like-minded freeschooling Afrikan families and educators.
About the Guardian Director
Htp, Mekyea wo, Greetings. Though born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana, I spent my “conscious”, formative years on the east coast, primarily in Washington DC, while attending Howard University. I was exposed to many of our great thinkers and do-ers of the day, such as Nana Kwame Ture, Nana Dr. Frances Cress Welsing and Nana John Henrik Clarke, and I was greatly influenced by the “Afrocentric” writings of the 80's by scholars such as Dr. Molefi Kete Asante. After returning to Indianapolis, I became active in and established activities and classes that promoted Afrikan cultural awareness and empowerment. Once my daughter was born (who is now 18), I began homeschooling her. In 2012, I founded Fawohodie Sua Pan-Afrikan Educational Online School as a means to access more Afrikan-centered instruction and offer this instruction to other families anywhere around the world. I have been teaching students for over 30 years. I enjoy graphic designing, and passionate about Afrikan dance, music and culture. Current and future efforts, in nearly all areas of my life, are geared toward building the knowledge-base, skillsets and collective core for achieving sustainable-living/Afrikan sovereignty.
