Go Fund Me page to support a life-changing trip to Ghana. Please support as you are led.
Support: At our 2016 annual gathering, we reaffirmed our purpose to uplift Quakers of African Descent around the world. We are equally committed to including young people on this trip, and members of the Peace Leadership and Arts Camp of Chester will join us.
Connect: Cross-cultural experiences are central to our Quaker Peace Testimony in helping create a world with greater mutual respect and understanding. As we come together with Ghanaian Friends in worship and fellowship, we seek to further the bonds of friendship, thereby strengthening our global community.
Learn: On this journey, we have the opportunity to travel historical and ecological trails. We will visit World Heritage Sites that played significant roles in the trans-Atlantic slave trade, including the “door of no return.” Also planned is a trip to a rain forest where we will learn about medicinal plants and the endangered species in the region.
The Fellowship of Friends of African Descent was formed out of a desire that Black Quakers know each other. Because of racial and economic inequalities in the United States, African Americans earn on average 75% of what our white counterparts make. In an effort to make the Fellowship’s Ghana trip more accessible to our members, we are raising funds to enable Friends who need financial assistance to travel to Ghana.
Please help make this once-in-a-lifetime experience possible for Friends in need.
In Gratitude and In the Spirit,
Members of the Fellowship
