Cheza Nami Foundation

Founded in 2011, "Cheza Nami" is Swahili for "Come play with me". Cheza Nami is a California based 501(c)3 non-profit organization, with headquarters in Pleasanton, California. Cheza Nami teaches African culture through dance, play and movement, using a play based model to teach cultural awareness to children in Northern California and worldwide. Our mission is to preserve and encourage the appreciation of African culture by inspiring and educating the American public about Africa’s extensive and unique attributes, regardless of their heritage of origin. Cheza Nami believes in a play-based, experiential approach to education and teaches African culture, through dance, play, and movement. We use cultural activities such as dance, drumming, imaginative play, and song to provide interactive and educational experiences to youth and adults.
