Black Global Development Corps Helps Blacks to Participate During and After Disasters
Says Rosanita Ratcliff of the Black Global Development Corps, "Many African-Americans are overlooked during times of natural disasters. This was especially apparent during the Haiti earthquake disaster. News outlets showed White organizations and their members helping with victims, rescuing them from buildings, feeding them. But, where were the images of Blacks? It is a hot topic of discussion in the Black community. Black Global Development Corps is trying to solve that problem."
The Black Global Development Corps disburses information regarding how to register as a minority owned business, how to register as a city, county, state and federal contractor, how to search for and find contracts, how to sign up as a business located in an empowerment zone, how to find trade missions, information regarding disaster relief training, and other educational information.
The purpose of the Black Global Development Corps is to train people of African descent to help before, during and after natural disasters in the communities in which they reside and in other communities as well.
“We want to help protect the legacies and cultures of those affected by disasters and assist them with gaining the skills to truly compete in the global economic market.” Says Rosanita Ratcliff, co-founder of the Black Kinship Network and developer of the Black Global Development Corps.
