The Yurumein Project is a Not for Profit organization that was established to intentionally mobilize for the retrieval and the reestablishment of the Garifuna language as the primary means of communication for Garinagu. We aim to uplift and steadfastly support the Garifuna People, especially youth, in securing facilities, structures and opportunities to ensure a path to the achievement of our fullest potential. 

We are also looking to re-establish Garifuna traditions such as honor, respect and care for the elderly as well as the concept of ‘au bun amuru nu’. We believe that teaching and promoting Garifuna spirituality is the bedrock of Garifuna duo.

Vision and Mission

We envision a people rooted in their identity, fluent in their language, competent in every aspect of their culture and thriving in their daily lives. Ours is a focused mission to learn and teach the Garifuna language and culture to those who identify as Garinagu in all parts of the world.
