Our Vision

Our Goal

 

That all individuals and different cultures will be valued regardless of their race, gender, country of origin and ethnicity when we understand each other. There are many ways to do this. JHP believes that music, specifically rhythms, are a universal and ancient language that has the power to unite us.

Just Humanitarian Project (JHP) Legacy is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization, based in the city of Shoreline, led by first generation African immigrants, who are accomplished musicians, performers, and artists and call King County their home.  

JHP was founded in 2013 by Eben Pobee, Akwasi Asare, and Philip Attipoe, who wanted to share their passion for music, dance, and all cultural arts to under served communities.

JHP is fully volunteer run with 6 key individuals who oversee all planning for community workshops and events.  

 

The two main points of contact are Eben Pobee, a city of Shoreline resident, artist, performer and event planner and Philip Attipoe, JHP Board member and Operations Committee Chair, and former president of the Ghanaian Association of Greater Seattle. Eben, a financial analyst for Pierce County, has a 4 year degree in Performing Arts and has successfully hosted 6 community festivals. In 2013, Eben began the celebrated multicultural festival at Concordia University in Portland while he was a graduate student obtaining an MBA in Finance. Philip Attipoe, an engineer for Amazon, is very knowledgeable and experienced in the local arts and music culture, having managed several local bands including Atsimevu Band, which performs at Folk Life and the Spirit of West Africa festival.
