I. The Advocacy Initiative called FEEEDS  

FEEEDS Advocacy Initiative (full name):

What does FEEEDS® or the FEEEDS Advocacy Initiative mean? FEEEDS is an acronym that encompasses some of the main global issues of today-- Food Security, Education, Environment-Energy, Economics, Democracy-Development and Self-help -- that both developed and developing countries are grappling with in order to address and resolve the challenges for the world community and assist with poverty alleviation. The acronym represents the first letter of these word-phrases, and is a small Africa Intermeidary Organization (AIO) working with underserved communities and groups using its voice to advocate for change and educate on the FEEEDS issues.  

All of the FEEEDS issues are also connected to human cultural communication and how we relate as people and as nations to each other. FEEEDS represents the first letter of each word or word-phrase noted above.

FEEEDS Advocacy Initiative provides lectures, contributions to Think Tank panels, provides training on FEEEDS issues and other global topics, and works with African Diaspora Groups and Small and Medium Size Enterprises. Under the banner of the FEEEDS Initiative, its CEO, Dr. Robin Renee Sanders, is a sought-after speaker, serves as a Woodrow Wilson Visiting Scholar for the nationally-recognized Center for Independent Colleges and Universities, is a Trustee for Pittsburgh's Robert Morris University, on the board of a leading global human rights organization and the Smithsonian Museum of African Art, and is the Africa Advisor for a number of Diaspora and other leading poverty alleviation and empowerment organizations such as Operation Hope.

 Explaining the Elements of the FEEEDS Acronym:


Food Security, Education, Environment-Energy, Economics, Development-Democracy, Self Help


  • Food Security - meaning smart food security which includes access to not just food but nutritional food;
  • Education - representing the entire range of education from knowledge management to knowledge usage, which includes training, retraining , entrepreneurship, and formal education;
  • Environment-Energy - climate smart enabling environments for communities to thrive, renewable energy and alternative energy resources and solutions;
  • Economics - enhancing living wages, ensuring governments, and community leaderships manage budgets and tax payer dollars not only effectively, but efficiently in order to address social service needs;
  • Democracy-Development - linking these two symbiotic issues are key to improving life-quality, especially for people of color; 
  • Self-Help - realizing that identity for anyone provides self-esteem, but for nations and people of color this also represents both power and empowerment.
