The meeting of those passions led us to start Little Doebahyou in 2016 to help bridge the gap between peoples of Africa & The Diaspora, starting with children.
Born in Monrovia, Liberia, but raised in the U.S., we grew up trying to embrace both our Liberian heritage and culture, as well as our American influence. Our love of travel and culture has taken us to places like Liberia, Morocco, Brazil, the Dominican Republic, Spain, Italy and many more countries where the influence of the African Diaspora can be seen, tasted and felt.
What we discovered was that although we live in different parts of the world, the people of the African diaspora are more connected that we think. We have a shared history, ancestry, culture and struggle. And these similarities allow us to connect on common ground. As we’ve explored and made friends across borders, we’ve embraced opportunities to celebrate and learn from our differences — an important step for acceptance, unity and forward movement. As the world becomes more of a global community, Little Doebahyou provides cultural and educational activities that can be enjoyed by the entire family in order to give children and their families opportunities for play and face-to-face interaction, as well as promote unity and acceptance between different people and cultures.
We hope that your entire family enjoys the information and activities in our monthly subscription box!
