AFRIKIN® was born from the concept of Africa plus kinship as a foundation for people of color to show who they really are. People of all colors should be able to be true to themselves and each other without social constructs.
AFRIKIN® is a collaborative platform for the presentation of world culture and a facilitator of the musing, creative and free spirit which is a catalyst of the “Boheme Effect”.
Several concerned members of the Haitian-American community in Florida have started the Haitian American Leadership Organization, Inc., (HALO), as a non-profit organization with the goal of unifying and empowering the Haitian diaspora.
We have noticed that a lot of our talents and resources are left in the shadows and unexploited. We are providing a platform for our thought leaders and experts from all academic, professional, and technical backgrounds to network and to share their knowledge with our community.
We believe that by promoting networking and unity we will be in a better position to help our local community and Haiti. In an attempt to remedy this significant shortcoming, we decided to start with two community projects.
