Thank you Tia Johnston Brown sorry for the late response I traveled to Zambia to meet with local leaders for two weeks. I am gratefully thankful for your advice and insight and have already taken it to guide us through our first community outreach project. We started our first phase community project which is building and fixing libraries in landlocked southern countries beginning with Zambia. We have partnered with the World Bank and IMF as well as MCPS to receive all the books we are currently in the process of reaching out to the government for transportation of these books from the port and for the usage of government land to bridge the gap between girls and education, the gap between government investment and education, and the gap between inequality and justice. We a;so met with some women in Zambia to begin a joint effort for a girls and women empowerment group for africa. We are working with local leaders in the area to find a space locally to find a meeting space to begin introducing different concepts that create dicides in our community and begin the process of bringing them. Thank you so much for your insight and support.

Thank you so much Kim Solem sorry for the late response I was in Lusaka, Zambia for two weeks and internet access is very restricting. I am deeply humbled and sincerely grateful for your kind words, we are actually beginning our first phase as we are registering the non profit this week with the help of an individual donor. We started our first phase community project which is building and fixing libraries in landlocked southern countries beginning with Zambia. We have partnered with the World Bank and IMF as well as MCPS to receive all the books we are currently in the process of reaching out to the government for transportation of these books from the port and for the usage of government land to bridge the gap between girls and education, the gap between government investment and education, and the gap between inequality and justice. We are also beginning the process of creating and initiating a girl and women's empowerment group of Africa. in America in our community we want to begin unconscious bias, stereotype, and microaggression table conversations to bring awareness and bridge divides in society. We would also like to bring voter awareness to the youth of our generation through face to face interactions and activities around the area. We would like to create greater youth opportunity in the DMV. and also have a focus on the refugee crisis. The way we look to do this is by having pillar issues that create divides in our society and have a realistic, sustainable, attainable, and forefront projects the illustrate a vision of conjoining a divided global community. For example Education an the relitoes that affect quality education globally from social stratification, to lack of funding, to staffing and look for ways to bridge the divide such as opening more libraries and providing easily accessible internet access we can bridge the divide on education.
