Are you ready to make a difference in the lives of deserving students and help them embark on a bright academic journey? Onyeka Tefari Wellness and Spa, known for their dedication to community service, proudly presents the "Bright Minds, Bright Future: Back-to-School Initiative Event" in support of Monarch School.

As part of our ongoing commitment to empowering the next generation, we invite you to join us in providing essential school supplies to students who need them the most. Every donation, no matter how small, can make a tremendous impact on a child's educational experience and set them on the path to a successful future.

A Little History

As you may be aware, Onyeka has been involved with community oriented events and initiatives in San Diego (officially) since 2012/2013. At that time, she started working with the homeless population, and this led to her forming Akhawaty Incorporated. It was during this time that Monarch School got on her radar. Monarch School  has served thousands of unhoused students since 1987. From their website "Nearly 300 students attend Monarch School each day and are provided a holistic education designed to meet their academic, social, emotional, and life skill needs. Monarch School is a trauma-informed and strength-based community where students can persevere through the trauma of homelessness that has affected them and their success in education."

Needless to say, each year, including throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, Onyeka has worked to help organize back to school drives that benefit the students at Monarch School. This year is the official launch of an annual Back To School Initiative hosted by Onyeka Tefari Wellness and Spa. We at Onyeka Tefari Wellness and Spa are committed to paving the path for future generations by providing the necessary resources through our school supplies drive, and we wholeheartedly invite and appreciate the support of our Tefari community in making this impactful initiative a reality. Together, let's empower students, unlock their potential, and shape a brighter future for all.
