About Heritage Box
Heritage Box was founded by parents of young children who are passionate about teaching their children their history and about Africa. It proved challenging to do this consistently, and they realized a lot of other parents had the same challenges. Even parents who adopt children of African heritage also face this challenge, and are in need of such a tool. Heritage Box was designed to aid families in raising self-aware and confident children!
