The Organisation of Black Unity (OBU) together with the Harambee Organisation are raising funds to reopen the Marcus Garvey Nursery in Birmingham UK.
The Marcus Garvey Nursery opened in 1976, to provide the best possible start to early years education, and to help overcome the vicious inequalities in the school system for Black children.
It was one of the first Black nurseries to open in Britain and aimed to give the pupils an understanding of their heritage, as well as to know their own self-worth and respect for themselves and the community.
The children were provided with the basis for a positive identity and exposed to the necessary pre-school skills for entry into mainstream school. The nursery closed for refurbishment in the late 2000s; however, works were never completed.
The OBU in partnership with the Harambee Organisation, are determined to re-establish the Marcus Garvey Nursery.
They have formed a new nursery company and have started the process of clearing the building so that the refurbishment can resume.
Your support is needed to reopen the Marcus Garvey Nursery. One of the ways of supporting the project is to join the OBU. If you do so, part of your membership fee will go to establishing the nursery.
You can also buy shares in Marcus Garvey Nursery. Shares cost £50 each, and all shareholders will be featured on a special plaque in the new nursery.
Another way of supporting the Marcus Garvey Nursery is to make donations. You can donate whatever you can afford.
There is also the possibility of joining the Board. If you have the skills and interest in nurseries or business management then you are encouraged to think about joining the board of the nursery.
