An Uzazi Village coordinated, BLUU funded on site project inviting People of Color & Indigenous (POCI) General Assembly attendees to come to Uzazi Village to complete a hands on project and learn more about the work Mama Hakima is doing in Kansas City. Uzazi Village is dedicated to improving health inequities with models of care that are community supported and sustained. Their vision is for every family, a healthy baby; for every baby, a healthy village. The Hands On Project will likely include work in the garden space and in the room where the lactation consultants do training and mentorship.
