African Immigrants and Refugees, migrating into the United States can be a miracle and a nightmare all at once for many. Escaping wars, poverty, and less than the humane quality of life within refugee camps were their stories. Today, as these strong and brilliant minds begin to shift the trajectory of their family’s future, they are met with debilitating cultural & societal barriers.
trapped within systematic cracks
It is estimated the U.S. is home to 2.1 million Africans. Yet, due to the resource exhaustion of critical programs, many of the world’s most vulnerable populations are getting trapped within systematic cracks. Gk Folks Foundation works diligently to seal/crystallize these gaps as we provide supplementary support in conjunction with leading African and Refugee organizations.Uniquely, GK Folks Foundation is driven by the desire to unravel one’s inner potential and give back to Africa.
For this reason, the Foundation is rooted in three primary Goals.
Mental Health Awareness
The Foundation leads Project Success, a career advancement program, and GKFolks Konnect, our mentorship program. In addition, GK Folks Foundation funds both cultural and academic scholarships as part of our commitment to make education accessible and affordable to students
