Cultural Enrichment Community Program with Washington Osiro
Cheza Nami is excited to partner with Washington Osiro to bring educational and interactive programs about African culture to the local community.
Washington Osiro, is a Bay Area-based engineer and children’s book author. He has done multiple readings at the Oakland Public Library and spoken at San Jose’s Yerba Buena High School. He published his first book in 2013: Wuodha: My Journey from Kenya to These United States and has written three other books since then. In this program, Osiro will read excerpts from his book and take questions from attendees. And for viewing will be a traveling suitcase displaying cultural African artifacts.
The main points of the session are to underscore the diversity of the U.S. and the World in general, the challenges that migrants face when moving from one culture to another, and the possibilities that are available in a new environment/culture with open mindedness and acceptance of change.
Program is 30 – 40 minutes in length. For all ages.
21st Century Skills: Global Awareness, Civic Literacy, Social and Cross-Cultural Skills, Flexibility and Adaptability, Initiative and Self-Direction
Learning Outcomes: Attendees will learn about the endless possibilities that comes with keeping an open mind when dealing with diversity and all the differences in the world that one is surrounded by.
