MELANIN PASSPORT INITIATIVE

The Melanin Passport Initiative is a philanthropy that gives freedom to inner city black children by assisting the attainment of travel documents, as well as planning & funding enriching retreats that expose them to horizons far beyond their neighborhood block. 

When Sajari Q chose her battle, she chose one not for the faint of heart. Her Passport Initiative for inner-city black children will require much more than financial support. The truth is, only 38% of black children live in homes with two parents, and when we look at low income neighborhoods that this initiative targets, that number plummets even further.
