Welcome! I’m Moji, I’m building community here on Patreon to support and inspire reparative action around [African] education and travel. My unschooling, self-directed lifestyle led me here now, to continue my efforts as a curator of educational retreats in Ouidah, Benin, West Africa. I create learning environments that center African knowledge and experience.

You, as part of this community, will benefit from my studies and offerings which all include a focus on health and education of Africans on the continent and across the diaspora, organized knowledge trips to Benin, and, of course, critical reparative dialogue to support decolonizing knowledge of and travel to Africa.

My goals here include raising money toward developing and marketing Wise African Woman (WAW) Retreats. For the past two years since conception of WAW I have been doing it all by myself. Your contribution now would help fund costs to produce the first retreat, WAW Birth Education Retreat in May 2019. Part of what I do in Benin is create on-the-ground partnerships and collaborations so that our dollars circulate among local people, not big corporations.

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

Your presence in my life, through Patreon, is vital for me to create spaces and educational projects that center indigenous people while disrupting western narratives. Join me, let’s get to know each other as we continue living and defining our freedom.

What I'll Use The Money To Accomplish:


  • Produce WAW Birth Education Retreat
The first retreat, in May, focuses on midwifery and herbs used in maternal and infant care. Become a patron to help make it a successful opening event.
  • Hire Assistance
I will hire professional assistance to create promotional photographs & videos, build the website, create a logo and write grants. I'm doing all of it now. I want to be able to focus on researching, networking and creating content to share with you and the world. When I can do that, more people will have an outlet to share their stories and have a decolonized educational resource for west Africa.
  • Travel Benin To Find Spaces, Experts and Stories
I will travel to seek out spaces, experts and stories and make sure local educators are compensated for their time and knowledge. Right now, we have people interested retreats that focus on textiles, beading, fishery and more midwifery.
  • Business Education and Networking
As a new African business owner, I will need to continue educating myself and attend networking events.
