Since its establishment in 1991, Agape Connection, Inc. has sought to prepare young people in the local community to be knowledgeable and culturally aware citizens and leaders. The Dunham Fund is proud to support Agape Connection’s 2018 Sankofa Summer School of History, Culture, and Creativity. This education program will help lay a foundation of knowledge and understanding of local children regarding African and African American culture. Sankofa Summer School provides an immersive, hands-on environment for students to explore topics related to diversity, African and African American heritage, and community leadership.

The program takes place at St. John Church in Aurora and students travel around the community to expand their perspective, engage in hands-on learning, and experience cultural diversity.

The Dunham Fund is proud to support a program that fosters education of cultures and empathy towards others.
