Formed in the UK in September 2020,the EnT Foundation (Ese ne Tekyerema Foundation)
is a Black led organization whose core mandate is to use diverse forms of creativity as a tool to promote social cohesion across communities.
Ese ne Tekyerema (EnT) meaning ‘the teeth and the tongue’, is an Adinkra symbol which originates from West Africa amongst the Akans of Ghana. Ese ne Tekyerema tells a story about the teeth and the tongue. These two human organs look different and perform different functions in the mouth, but together, they help the body fulfill the vital role of nutrition.
It’s not always an amicable relationship between the teeth and the tongue but together they can work for the greater good. This is a story about friendship and interdependence, and this is our philosophy.
We simply call it, Unity in Diversity.
We aspire to create a more inclusive and integrated society here and beyond.
We are here to use diverse forms of creativity to promote social cohesion.
Underpinning all we do is CREATIVITY because we believe we are a co-creative force with the world around us. So we seek COLLABORATION to create a COMMUNITY, celebrating our very many differences and similarities. This with simply call, UNITY in DIVERSITY
