What does it mean to be an Afrikan Man?

Activities include seminars, workshops, camps and training programmes. The name SHABAKA is from a great Pharaoh who around 700 B.C. reunited Kemet (Egypt), Nubia (Sudan) and Kush (Ethiopia) after many years of decline in the Nile Valley area.

SHABAKA is a program that seeks to respond to some of the many contemporary challenges concerning Afrikan men: Low self esteem, unemployment crime, lack of cultural integrity, violence, substance abuse, unhealthy life styles and suicide.

A large number of Afrikan men get caught up in a negative circle of thought and behaviour with grave consequences not only for themselves, but for their families and the communities in which they live. The SHABAKA program provides a platform for men of different age groups to heal, develop and prosper. And, not the least, empower them in their quest to make healthy choices.

________________

Shabaka – Men of Afrika is an initiative for and by Afrikan men focusing on empowering our selves, our families and communities. Several activities will be hosted in 2012: Black Men’s Lekgotla are seminars that will be hosted in communities near Johannesburg and Tshwane. Also, there will be two Brothers’ Conventions in each city – these are conferences with great speakers and practical workshops.

All these events are strictly for Brothers. But, rest assured, KANDAKA – Women of Afrika is under development and will soon start events for Sisters.
