KADIWAKU FAMILY FOUNDATION

Our free English as Second Language classes help refugees and immigrants improve their English skills for work, college, and their daily lives.

Tutors will participate in an ESL program consisting of six-hour lessons per week over the course of six months and they will be working with program participants across several different platforms (zoom, google, etc) and in-person to deliver English instruction and help them navigate the online resources and track their progress.

Tutors must be able to connect with clients and establish a rapport of trust and respect despite a language barrier. Tutors who speak languages such as French, Lingala and Swahili would be in high demand for beginner English students.

Mission Statement

The organization serves Connecticut refugee and immigrant residents with particular attention to those who lack educational and employment opportunities which we consider to be the main factors behind high wealth disparities among racial groups. Additionally, the Kadiwaku Foundation works in close collaboration with other partners and community resources to reduce inequalities that are tied to long-standing barriers to accessing essential resources such as health, food, housing, education, and other opportunities. Moreover, the foundation advocates for the State to recognize the need for racial equity in the Connecticut workforce system and understand the racial demographics of their participants.

Description

A social entrepreneur John Kadiwaku initiated Kadiwaku Foundation back in 2017. As a human rights activist, Kadiwaku was driven by the vision to support and provide equal opportunities to the African people living in an economic crisis.

In DR Congo, the organization has made a significant impact by enabling 1000+ youths to create employment opportunities for themselves and their communities and advocate for their human rights. After two years, the organization is expanding its programs to other countries, including Uganda and Malawi, with the same purpose.

Now Kadiwaku Foundation is serving in Connecticut to stabilize refugees and immigrants as well as undocumented people economically, socially, and intellectually. Our aim is to reduce inequalities that are tied to long-standing barriers to accessing essential resources such as health, food, housing, education, and other opportunities, as well as discrimination and systemic racism.
