Non-profit umbrella entity comprised of 1-st gen African youth building our respective communities
Our promoting brand is based on a mission to promote unity, influence peace, and establish co-existence among our various East African communities within our great city of Philadelphia..all in the name of #Selam(universally meaning “hello” or “PEACE”). In 2018, Eritrea and Ethiopia came to a long-anticipated agreement to open up their borders calling for continued peace, proving that two nations can work together. These nations come from Mother Africa, a deep influence in the history and cultures of the world today as much as in this growing city. We aim to empower our neighboring communities from neighboring nations rooted in the #HornOfAfrica and spread out across the globe. We follow and lead by that same act of unity within our own founding committee comprised of 1st-generation immigrants from East African countries and Philly natives alike. We are the youth that grew up together from harrowing neighborhoods to growing adults spreading the #BrotherlyLove.
