I was given an assignment in my Urban Economic Public Policy Class at Morehouse College to find economic solutions for the African American community. I concluded, we could feed ourselves out of poverty. I have been trying to prove this ever since!. The Adventures of Hotep has been apart of The Adventures from the beginning.
Hotep continues his ancient quest to lift the children to inherit the earth. On his quest to find Maat (meaning truth, righteousness and justice) he discovered #Familyhood.
#Familyhood defines schools as the center for a communities development and utilizes the schools inter-generational population (students, parents, teachers, community partners) to promote governance from within community through its institutions.
#Familyhood (meaning Twitter.com/familyhood) is driven by two motto's.
1) Every school shall have a functioning Student Government Association, Parent Teacher Association and Alum Association.
2) Every school shall have a garden, a farmers market and a grocery store.
1st Saturdays, representing the first Saturday of the month as the official monthly volunteer day at schools, is the "do now" strategy to advance a school towards #Familyhood.
#1stSaturdays (meaning Twitter.com/1stSaturdays) is the official handle to promote #1stSaturdays.
1stSaturdays.com is the official website for schools to register their school sites for 1st Saturdays, monthly volunteer efforts.|
#friendsofschool (meaning Twitter.com/friendsofschool) is the official handle to promote motto #1 ( every school shall have a functioning Student Government Association, Parent Teacher Association and Alum Association).
The official website is friendsofschool.org
#mobetterfood (meaning Twitter.com/mobetterfood) is the official handle to promote motto #2 (every school shall have a garden, a farmers market and a grocery store. The official website is mobetterfood.com
In short, the school's #Familyhood (the collaboration of Student Government leaders, Parent Teacher members, and Alum) plan and operate their school garden, farmers market and a future grocery store.
