Let's build a better world together

Cheza Nami is a California-based nonprofit organization that  aims to promote cultural education and diversity awareness.


"Come Play With Me"

Cheza Nami Foundation...

Aims to promote cultural education and diversity awareness in learning institutions, corporations, and communities that foster a more congenial relationship among its members.

Our mission is to preserve and encourage the appreciation of African culture by inspiring and educating the American public about Africa’s extensive and unique attributes, regardless of their heritage of origin. 

Cheza Nami believes in a play-based, experiential approach to education and teaches African culture through dance, play, and movement. We use cultural activities such as dance, drumming, imaginative play, and song to provide interactive, educational experiences.
