On February-6, 2018 EDFU coordinated a trip to Google headquarters for the youth of Oakland Military Institute (OMI).
President of EDFU, Sheldon Williams, was on hand to guide the children on their field trip and give them a unique and inspiring opportunity.
The children had fun touring Google and really enjoyed the food! EDFU would like to thank Google for allowing them to have this opportunity and looks forward to working with them and OMI in the future!
Edfu Foundation is proud to help sponsor the following event :
The Sash Ceremony is a yearly event held exclusively by The KaLu Akademy & Early Development Center, a private, cultural educational program arm of The Temple of Human Spirituality in affiliation with Edfu Foundation.
Join us as we share some of our program with the community as well as the accomplishments made by our Skarabs during the year.
The KaLu Academy is unique in that it is not based on a grade to grade system like Western education. We, instead, have a three Sash system that is based on a curriculum structure created by the founder of The KaLu AKademy, Dr. Karaam Ellis-El. The Sashes represent a cycle of information, of development and of grooming for the Skarabs and allows them to move as fast as comfortable to them. In our Sash Ceremony, we acknowledge the accomplishment of our Skarabs and prepare for the continuation of our work for the coming academy year. We hold a commencement ceremony for any Skarabs who are graduating (Sash II completed) from the Academy. While still within the revenue districts of the city, we are compelled to match the Western educational calendar for the convenience of the working parents but soon, we will begin to utilize the true calendar, the solar calendar which will put us on a 38 hour day. This means that we will move faster and accomplish much more than we ever did. Today, we want you to celebrate with us. Celebrate the achievements of our Skarabs, celebrate the potential that KaLu has to offer our communities, celebrate the growth that we have attained in our few years here in Hampton Roads and celebrate what KaLu will bring for the coming days, weeks, months and years. We thank you for sharing in our growth and hope you enjoy our presentation. Tawuhaat.
