We are Tiwalade an organization that uses both spirituality, and Yoruba cultural tools to reach those in need of our services. We are an African centered spiritual group led by individuals who help by serving. We believe that rites of passage programs can, and will improve and empower the lives of young inner city youth. Our rites of passage program includes, but is not limited to, African drum and dance, cloth weaving, and dyeing. Our program also include gardening, building, wood carving, drum and small instrument making, we offer naming ceremonies, consultations, counseling and classes on Ifa and Yoruba culture.
We also offer services to those in need; we gather and distribute information concerning aid for displaced individuals. Our aim is to provide services that we developed and implement by using Ifa code of conduct and ethics. Ifa teaches us that we are our neighbor’s keeper. We feed the hungry two times a month using our outreach team members. We cloth the needy by gathering gently used clothing articles and transport them to those in need. We strongly encourage all of our youth members to be involved in these endeavors for this is a way of building good character.
Our model is build community, and use integrity, patience and good character.
