Early this year, AsOne Global partnered with the University of Pennsylvania Netter Center for Community Partnerships and implemented a fourth grade African Studies after-school academic enrichment program at B.B. Comegys Elementary School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania under a project-based learning grant. The curriculum design for this unit of study was predicated on the belief that literacy rates increase with the utilization of culturally relevant education. The curriculum was specifically designed for this program and was prepared by AsOne Global CEO, Tamara Bradford. All of the lessons were faciliated by AsOne Global COO, Farrah Alkhaleel, as well as several other University of Pennsylvania undergraduate volunteers. The program duration was from January until May 2014. Lessons were held every Tuesday and Thursday from 4:00pm until 5:30pm and were composed of 12 lessons meant to expose students to the rich, complex history of Africa prior to the Slave Trade and present them with an accurate portrayal of contemporary issues facing Africa and Africans.
