About Us

The Sesheme Foundation has been working with families in our East Toronto communities since 2012.  Today, we are building on this experience with a renewed vision focused on

creating culturally rich and inclusive communities.

Sesheme programs help convey the African worldview that emphasizes the values of family relationships, inclusiveness, child and parental care, self-sacrificing concern for others,

sharing, and even hospitality. Poverty, isolation, and employability are among the

key barriers to a healthy, vibrant community.


Our programs are designed to address barriers to opportunity, inequality and economic marginalization while building on our unique expertise in capacity building, community development and cultural competencies in developing community led solutions.
