UNITED for SURVIVAL
Village by Village
The story of first world people
On January 15th, 2012, Babatu Rudo (aka Fred Myers) from the U.S.A along with friends from Accra in Ghana, West Africa, were comparing the similarities between African people of the Diaspora and Africans on the Continent. We surmised that we have the same common problems; that is; " enriching the economy of foreign countries, foreign religious polarization and the adaptation of europecentric ideologies." I shared with them including the Chiefs, our African Rites of Passage Organization we started in Baltimore Maryland, headed by Kumasi Johnson.
I purchased 6 acres of land and named it, Kwabena Healing Grounds (KHG), located in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. KHG was a magnificent six acre farm dedicated to the empowerment of improvised African-American Youth and their returning to the Afrocentric worldview. Korean War Veteran, Mr. Charles Ritzberg, our Elder from Richmond Virginia was a great inspiration, organizer and contributor. He formulated a lot of these words you are now reading. All praises due to him, while he is still alive.
The name Kwabena was a name selected from a village in Ghana, where I originally intended to build a school. However, KHG, did not survive the real-estate housing crisis at that particular time, partly because of a lack of concern from our own communities.
I also was affiliated with a rites of passage organization in Baltimore, Maryland called Alkebulan (one of the original names of Africa). There, I partnered with Mr. Kumase Johnson, (Sangowuji) a Yoruba babalowo. He was and still is a young dedicated brother.
The First World People Organization (FWPO), has been through a lot of difficulties times due to betrayals and opportunist because of this it was necessary for us to add, Galactic Enterprises as our subsidiary to protect us from scrupulous characters. The name of our Non-Profit Organization is based on the Afrocentric-Pan-Africanist worldview, because we our the first Hue-man beings to inhabit the earth.
Babatu Rudo (aka Fred Myers), Visionary of First World People Organization
This vision has led me to my Exodus, Sojourn and Sankofa back to mother Africa. FWP/Galactic enterprises, we consider ourselves Unifiers of our different cultures, economically, physically and spiritual. We can no longer wait on, religions, or foreign approval to show us the Love that we can give to ourselves.

The potential of people of color has been severely compromised by Slavery, Globalized Conspiracies, namely, Mis-Education, Economic and Racial Exploitation and Oppression. In spite of these obstacles - we rise. As it was in the Beginning so shall it be in the End.
Generations of so-called Third world people have suffered from the hands of slavery, colonization, Jim Crow-ism, industrialization, environmental mismanagement, addiction, institutionalization, incrimination's, broken family structures, drugs, homosexuality, pro-filling and poor health ie.. White Rule. Through all of these distractions and limitations, people of color has persevered and will never give up knowing that truth will always rise to the top and seeds will always grow.
Hence the name, Kwabenya – NEVER GIVE UP, an Ashanti word from Ghana, West Africa came into being. Our Non-Profit Organization(FWP) is open to address this reality and to protect our future generations. This state of consciousness, is the responsibility globally of all human beings regardless of race, greed or color. We do not subscribe to Individualism, Competition or a pie in the sky waiting on you to die Theology. Our consciousness we connect back to our Ancestors and our Traditions.
Kwabenya Healing Grounds was a sanctuary for a unified vision of transformation and healing from the White dominant society . People came to this space to free their mind and spirit, which is the driving force of their soul. We incorporated the principles of MAAT and Neuter,(Orishas). All Spiritual being with Love in their hearts for all humanity, are welcome.
WE NEED YOUR ASSISTANCE IN ANY SHAPE FORM OR FASHION.
We are willing to partner with any organizations sharing Afrocentric cultural values. FIRST WORLD PEOPLE, AND GALACTIC CHARITIES, is an, NOT FOR PROFIT association that does not have any political or religious affiliations for obvious divisive reasons. We must and will come out of the mindset our oppressors (Sankofa), and re-establish the idea of borderless continent. One unified Africa for the salvation of our future generations.
