"Cheza Nami" is Swahili for "Come play with me". We are a California based 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, with headquarters in Pleasanton, California. Our organization believes in a play based approach to education. We teach African culture through dance, play, and movement.
We believe in the experiential form of education.
Our Core Mission, is to preserve and encourage the appreciation of African culture by inspiring and educating the American public about Africa’s extensive and unique attributes, regardless of their heritage of origin. We provide interactive, educational experiences through dance, music, art, play, language and African products.
We rely on the support of local artist and donors to provide quality African cultural education.
