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