Our Activities

At Kujenga, we provided educational webinars and discussions about issues and topics that mattered to you the most. We hosted support groups for women, and explored our healing, empowerment and resilience. We started a Kujali, Black Family Support Line that provides immediate support, navigation, and counselling services to families. We gifted many families with gift cards, clothing donation, and food to prepare them for the winter and return to school in 2021. We advocated for the rights of our children and youth, our vulnerable community members, and against anti-Black racism.
