Dear Dafesta family, we hope you and your family are doing well.

Since day one, the goal of Dafesta is to always support talented African Youths living in Diaspora, and we will always stand for that, because we believe in The United States of America there is a lot of talent from The African community but sometimes they really don’t know where to go to get the support they need.
