The New Passage Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the African lives lost along "The Middle Passage" during the slave trade. We are building "The New Passage” for the African Diaspora and planting the seeds of friendship between communities separated by distance for generations to come.
Our mission is to build partnerships and resources to foster the growth of people in search of learning, experiencing, and connecting with the African Diaspora to help them grow as a person, an organization, and leaders—while also developing a robust global network.
The New Passage Foundation is proud to announce our new partnership with the Society for Black Brain and Behavioral Scientists (SB3S) based in the United States and Seven United (SUN) based in Rwanda. The Society for Black Brain and Behavioral Scientists will be developing and providing quarterly workshops to members of Seven United, starting with a series on mental health and career development. We will help to organize and fund the 2021 workshop series. Following the success of the pilot workshop series, our goal is to expand this partnership to provide study/work/research abroad experiences in Rwanda for SB3S members.
The Society for Black Brain and Behavioral Scientists is a non-profit, 501(c) (3) organization. Their goal is to increase diversity in the brain and behavioral sciences by creating awareness and knowledge of these fields within the Black community and providing access to programs, resources, knowledge, career advice, funding, and networking to Black scientists in these fields.
Seven United (SUN) is an organization based in Rwanda that encourages youth to be leaders in service to their community. The organization prioritizes education through service and community engagement: members of SUN are empowered to uplift and create positive change in their communities. SUN also provides access to education for a cohort of young children who could not otherwise afford to attend school. Additionally, SUN has a program known as Future Nation that aims to empower women and provide reproductive health education. We are excited to work with SUN to increase awareness of brain and behavioral science!
