As a mother of two young girls, it has always been my desire to pass on my language and culture to my children but it soon became obvious that there was a dearth of educational materials aimed at teaching children Nigerian languages. This inspired me to do something about it myself. As well as speaking Yoruba to my 1st daughter who was one at the time, I also translated her favourite nursery rhymes into Yoruba and taught them to her. A lot of my friends started asking me to teach their kids songs in Yoruba so I thought “why not make this available to everyone”. That was how CultureTree got started.
I hope you find our resources helpful and wish you all the best in raising your child/children to appreciate our African culture, language and heritage.
