Our Mission

Birthright AFRICA inspires youth and young adults of African descent ages 13 – 30 to explore their cultural roots and legacy of innovation within the United States and select nations in Africa as a birthright. 

Our Story

Formed in 2015 by co-founders Walla Elsheikh and Diallo Shabazz, Birthright AFRICA’s heritage-based leadership program inspires scholars to draw pride, confidence, and creativity from their cultural roots and legacy of innovation in the U.S. and Africa.

COVID 19 Alert

Due to COVID-19 travel measures, Birthright AFRICA travel programs are currently suspended
and will resume once travel bans are lifted and it is deemed safe for scholars to travel
