Jessica Effah (Board member)

My name is Jessica Effah. I am a social worker and teacher. I am also an Afropean living in Holland’s capital city! Being an Afropean is amazing, but we also face some difficulties. I would love for other Afropeans to have more recognition, but also places to find support battling these difficulties. With this foundation I am sure we are able to unite and support each other, making the Afropean experience better but also show what we got! Different generations have different questions, needs, wishes and dreams. My passion is working socially, with families and children. An example is explaining and guiding Afropean parents through the Dutch school system, which can be confusing at times. But also sharing the love for our cultures through representation in classes.
