During the year of 2017, Vizionz-Sankofa became aware that African Refugees and Immigrants had hardly been equipped and empowered to thrive and contribute to the communities of their new homes. Vizionz-Sankofa created English and technology classes specifically for African Refugees, who are taught incorporating the use of their native languages. Vizionz-Sankofa’s goals and objectives are to (1) enhance educational opportunities, (2) teach cultural and self- advocacy, (3) provide job readiness and skill-training opportunities, and (4) promote racial and cultural inclusion. The majority of the services provided by Vizionz-Sankofa are done in the International District of Albuquerque.
