Habesha, Inc.

HABESHA Inc. was formed in 2002 under the leadership of the organization’s Executive Director, Cashawn Myers. As a Clark Atlanta University graduate student, Myers was inspired by a professor’s remarks concerning the lack of positive opportunities for youth living in public housing units neighboring the university’s campus. This occurrence convinced Myers to start of a summer cultural enrichment program called Plant a CEAD,(Cultural Enrichment and Academic Development). The program later evolved into the Black to our Roots program (see more details below). From this base, the organization expanded its activities to include education and awareness around sustainable agriculture, entrepreneurship, holistic health and technology. HABESHA’s success has led to the establishment of an affiliate branch in Baltimore as well as the Atlanta-based HABESHA Gardens Complex. The work of the organization has also been featured on Georgia Public Broadcasting and CNN.   Visit http://habeshainc.org/
