Mission & Vision
Sawubona's mission is to EMPOWER, EDUCATE and ENLIGHTEN. To be a resource and provide a safe space for families of African descent, to come together, to meet, connect and share. To get connected to resources and expertise. To inspire and support one another through our unique and often challenging and isolating journey of raising Black children or supporting a sibling, or family member of any age, with a disability.
On this journey, we also hope to further enlighten the community as to how they can better and more effectively support Black families. This is for us, by us and about us.
Our vision is for a society where Black families caring for a family member with a disability receive the supports and services they need and deserve to be able to confidently and holistically support an increased quality of life.
