What We Do
The BHRs South American Language Skills Acquisition project (BHRSALSA) is the Black Heritage Rider’s Latin American initiative. We implement community-based ESL instruction which along with educational enrichment resources, give Afro-American children living in South American impoverished communities a better opportunity to improve their lives. Our focus is on motivating and helping underserved Afro-American children advance and succeed academically. Providing young children with English language skills create educational opportunities that can overcome the overwhelming challenges of obtaining employment and work experience.
