Welcome to the Wellness Project

Kujenga is a Black-led grassroots project designed to initiate supportive community resources for children, youth, adults and families in Durham Region. We strive to build our community foundation, promote holistic teaching and education, and promote mental wellness and healing from trauma.

Celebrate Black History with Kujenga!

Celebrate your excellence, our Canadian excellence, our culture, and our resistance

Kujenga Wellness Project is a central space where our community provides support and education to parents, caregivers and guardians. In our education, it is important for our community to share how our culture, identity, and experiences have contributed to Canadian Society, policies and practices, and knowledge.

Whether you identify as Black, or a parent/caregiver/guardian, or an accomplice/ally, join us on Thursdays in February to celebrate our excellence, our culture and our resistance.

Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.
