The KRoussaw Foundation was founded by Kilil Roussaw, and Whitney Royal in 2019. The interest was to provide the community with resources that would promote growth in the areas that needed attention most. A child and family-centered approach to addressing issues that plague the community was the focus. We have been serving the community in that capacity since our inception.
THE 5 PILLARS OF THE KROUSSAW FOUNDATION
1) Character Development
To cultivate or mature the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual’s soul, archetype, and inherent nature. To accomplish the objective of the development of character, we aim to educate and model these core principles of the Study of Purpose and Effective & Servant Leadership Training.
2) Principles of Economics (Macro & Micro)
“Economics is a social science concerned with the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services. It studies how individuals, businesses, governments, and nations make choices about how to allocate resources,” (Investopedia, Hayes, 2020). According to the NAACP, the common recurring statistic in money circulation within communities, and other organizations, suggests that the Black dollar is unregulated but only has an average lifespan of just six hours in Black communities.
3) The Importance of Holistic Health & Wellness
Good health and wellness practices lead to good spiritual, mental, physical, emotional and community health. Therefore, working as a whole to strive for better health and wellness habits can help boost self-confidence, self-esteem, self-worth and help prevent a variety of ailments including cardiovascular disease, obesity, depression, etc.
4) The Power of Entrepreneurship
The epitome of entrepreneurship can be found in this quote: “Dedicate yourself to a core set of values. Without them, you will never be able to find personal fulfillment, and you will never be able to lead effectively.” — Kenneth Chenault. To be an entrepreneur takes freedom from the norm, self-discipline, and calculated risks. In addition, evolution and adaptation is key as entrepreneurs strive to learn from their successes and their failures, in order to advance the culture all around them.
5) Know Your History
Future history cannot be fulfilled without possessing the knowledge and understanding of the power of our ancestor’s past. The true knowledge of one’s history provides the inquirer with the means to examine and discover significant triumphs, challenges, and patterns of the past. Thus, fostering fundamental perspectives for understanding and resolving present and imminent crises.
