​​Finding Spirit Radio Talk Show - The Re-birth

Re-birthing African Love, Culture & Consciousness

Nehanda and her mother co-founded Mothers for Africa the Nana Sekyiaabea Foundation in 2006. Her first project was assisting in building a new school in her village, which she proudly completed the construction of a new school in 2009. In January of 2010 during the aftermath of the Haitian earthquake Mothers for Africa organized an emergency humanitarian group trip to Haiti.  The organization raised money to purchase rice, medical supplies and clothes and conducted mobile health clinics utilizing volunteer doctors and nurses.  This trip created two new programs, The Child Sponsorship Program, and Micro Business Loans. In 2009 her dear friend son of Patrice Lumumba the first Prime Minister of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) educated her on the genocide taking place in his country.  In 2011 Nehanda traveled alone to the conflict zone in the DRC.  This resulted to extending the Child Sponsorship & Micro Loan programs in the DRC. 

In October of 2016 she organized her First Annual group trip to Ghana.  The success of the trip was groundbreaking for many of its attendees. They met with African American Expats and Ghanaians who conducted seminars on Trade and Commerce and how to start a business in Ghana.  

Nehanda hosted a radio talk show called “Finding Spirit” in 2005 and 2006 where she interviewed notables in the African Diaspora discussing issues that impacted the African Diaspora.
