Chi-Village programs support local businesses and creative enterprises contributing to economic empowerment and the advancement of the African Diaspora.
A workshop focused on bringing "#ChiVillageKids" together annually for a wellness check-in. #ChiVillageKids are encouraged to explore new spiritual healing tools and practices, holistic health regimens, and participate in wellness workshops.
In 2021 the "Viberaiser" was launched. The program is designed to strengthen reciprocal interaction between emotional, mental, and physical health throughout African diasporic communities in the Chicagoland area. The Viberaiser provides individuals with a sensory stimulating and soul stirring experience showcasing African diasporic culture, art forms, local businesses, and health practitioners.
In August 2020, during the height of the COVID-19 crisis, Chi-Village was founded after hosting a small free festival for the community to pay homage to their ancestors, honor elders in the village, and share their talents & gifts.
