Afrinanny Inc Letter From The Founders
As Black parents, we have the incredible burden of ensuring that our children are aware of their skin color. Often, others weaponize our skin, our existence, which is an incredible threat to our lives.
We created Afrinanny out of the frustration of difficulty in locating culturally appropriate childcare options.
Constantly being bombarded with images and stories that did not appeal to our families, led us to create a safe virtual village for ALL families of Black children to quickly locate child care providers that could tend to their unique needs as a Black child.
It is with heavy hearts we continue to watch the overt abuse of Black people in America. Tamir Rice, Trayvon Martin, Laquan McDonald, Tyre King, Antwon Rose, Aiyana Jones, Michael Brown, Kwame Jones, Ramarley Graham, Christian Taylor, and Jordan Edwards are a part of a long list of children and teenagers killed by vigilantes or police officers. We do not want to keep adding to the list.
We stand with the families of all violence in particularly these crimes that go unpunished.
For those that empathize with the families of slain Black children and adults, Thank You. To push the needle forward, please advocate for local, state, and federal government institutions for equitable racial, economic, and social justice for Black people.
Our search is over! Finally, an app specifically for black families who desire to find culturally relevant care.
Safe and secure. We don't have to worry about background checks or endless interviews. Afrinanny does it all!
An easy place to locate families that need childcare.
Afrinanny is a long overdue, imperative tool for the psychological well being of Black children.
Afrinanny came at the right time and helped me get a fantastic and reasonably priced caregiver.
Afrinanny was so helpful. We got a nice Ethiopian nanny who became part of the family. That was important to me.
