About Moji Yai

Welcome! I’m Moji, I’m building community here on Patreon to RECORD, RECLAIM and REVIVE indigenous practices in Benin that support the full spectrum of women's health needs.  

My unschooling, self-directed lifestyle led me here now, to continue my efforts as a creator of educational projects and spaces that center African systems while disrupting western narratives.

You, as part of this community, will benefit from my studies and offerings which all include a focus on health and education, organized knowledge trips to Benin, and, of course, critical reparative dialogue to support decolonizing knowledge and use of indigenous African health and education systems.

Part of what I do in Benin is RECORD, RECLAIM and REVIVE indigenous healing practices to benefit the local  and global community through projects like the Wise African Woman Birth Education Retreats to Benin.  I also create blogs, courses and other online resources that center African knowledge and experience.

I am an educator, a birth worker and an unapologetic African. If your curiosities and explorations include decolonizing, unschooling, conscious parenting, or waist beads, you’ll find useful information and conversation here, so I invite you to join me at any level that makes sense for you. You could also make a one-time donation to me through Paypal if you prefer: paypal.me/littlebylittlebirth

 Join me, let’s get to know each other as we continue living and defining our freedom.

-- What I'll Accomplish With The Money --

  • Study of Indigenous Health and Education Systems
I compensate those who bless me with their time, stories and partnership because their knowledge is valuable.  Funds will also be used for travel to seek out experts and stories.

  • Help Restore Traditional Healing Spaces
  Traditionally there is a home for women who are menstruating to stay in comfort away from every day life stresses.  This home is no longer available for women because other people in the community need it as living space, money from patrons will be used to find a solution.  Funds will also be used to help traditional midwives keep their clinics open.  
 
  • Start a Self-Directed Learning Center 
One of my goals is to start a self-directed learning center for all ages.  Schooling is a huge mode of colonization that impedes learning and creativity.  School de-centers indigenous systems and local needs.  Over 20% of the global youth population reside in Africa, self-directed environments support creative economic growth, decolonization and liberated living.
Goals

This goal is about creating an alternative to schooling for the local youth in Ouidah.

 A self-directed learning space for all ages that centers unschooling, indigenous education systems and decolonization.

Because it is rooted in colonialism, modern schools de-center indigenous systems and local needs; it impedes creativity towards local problems while glorifying western, unsustainable ways.  Over 20% of the global youth population reside in Africa and with schooling most are left unable to create a living within their community.  Self-directed learners use and build local resources with creative and sustainable economic growth.
