Empowering Students for a Better Future
The Distant Relatives Project believes every child should have access to a quality education that allows them to compete in today’s developing world. Our agenda is to create a system where students have continuous access to information and can develop technical skills in a healthy learning environment. The DRP optimizes existing curriculums to meet the international standard of learning. Through the promotion of STEM education and collaborations with global tech companies, we expose students to technologies that are taking over today’s workforce. The DRP focuses on individual and group development through our mentoring programs. Our programs range from self-care, introduction to computing, coding/programming, and proper hygiene. Our long term goal is to build a school in Ghana for students who come from underserved communities, to serve as a pathway to higher learning.
Eradicating Homelessness in the United States
The Distant Relatives Project is committed to eradicating homelessness in the United States. Through our Feeding Our Relatives program, we empower displaced communities through a range of service offerings and providing access to resources. Our goal is to lead the displaced community on a path to self-sustainability, through a series of outreach and community engagement. Our programs promote a time for healing and educating on the importance of self-care and survival tactics. During our program, our relatives can receive housing assistance, healthy meals and fresh produce, medical screenings, potential health insurance, and the provisioning of basic daily necessities. Additional services include mental health counseling, substance abuse awareness, emergency clothing and blankets, grooming services, and identification.
