Nurturing Strong African Nova Scotian Families Parenting Program

East Preston, Canada

Open to residents across Nova Scotia. This parenting program was developed specifically for African Nova Scotian parents/caregivers raising African Nova Scotian children; recognizing the cultural, racial, and historical factors that impact African Nova Scotian families and the specific task the parent/caregivers of (ANS) parents have in helping their children understand and respond to the realities of race and culture. The Nurturing Strong African Nova Scotian Families parenting program was developed in response to the lack of culturally specific parenting programs that address the realities of African Nova Scotians parents and children. The program is grounded in important research out of Canada and the United States on the historical and lived realities of Black families, parents and children. In addition, the program includes valuable and ongoing feedback provided by African Nova Scotian parents. The Nurturing Strong African Nova Scotian Families parenting program is based on the belief that the family and the community have a shared responsibility to care for and protect their children which is best captured in the African proverb, ”It takes a village to raise a child.” it also focuses on cultural pride reinforcement (CPR) which includes teaching and modelling for children how to feel good about themselves and their cultural heritage.

Hope Blooms

Halifax, Canada

Hope Blooms was founded in 2008 by Jessie Jollymore, Community Dietician in the inner city of the North End of Halifax. Working on food security issues and helping people with chronic illness, Jessie saw that simply telling people about the importance of a healthy diet wasn’t enough, and that if people cannot afford to buy healthy food, they were left feeling helpless. Jessie was warned that the garden would be vandalized, or she was shrugged off as being too idealistic, but six years later with a lot of perseverance and community support, the garden is thriving with over 40 youth and their families changing their community for the better, and demonstrating that “when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” Source: http://hopeblooms.ca/
