The children of Osogbo are indeed on precious reservoir of cultural custodians for the future of traditionalist Yorubaland and it is important that we invest in them. In 2005 the Osun Grove in Osogbo, Nigeria was designated a world heritage site by UNESCO. Neither the Osun Grove nor the huge festival that has brought Osogbo so much fame would be possible without the tireless devotion of hundreds of traditionalist families in Osogbo. The children of these families are the future of traditional Yoruba culture in Osogbo, and Àsàlayé Academy will fill a previously overlooked gap in providing an important service for them. Designed as a “summer” or “holiday” school, Àsàlayé Academy will teach an enrichment curriculum to traditionalist children ages 5-10. In addition to standard age-appropriate curricula, Àsàlayé Academy will have a cultural component that motivates and instills pride in the children as Osogbo’s cultural custodians of the future, encouraging them to enthusiastically pick up the torch of cultural stewardship when it falls to them.
