Keeping Our Heritage Alive
Our project is about honoring our ancestors and our legacy. Tamina Cemetery and Community Project CDC are comprised of the descendants of Tamina's forefathers, churches, and other community members. Our purpose is to restore the Sweet Rest Cemetery and continue its perpetual care. We want to keep our heritage alive among future generations so that they know, recognize, and honor their legacy and acknowledge Sweet Rest Cemetery as a historical landmark.
Making A Difference
Our endeavors are bringing about community growth. Here's how we are making a change:
Honoring Our Ancestors
Cemeteries are important keys to Texas' past, settlement patterns, historical events, religion, lifestyles, and genealogy. Unfortunately, they are increasingly threatened by development pressures, encroachment, vandalism, and theft. Tamina Sweet Rest Cemetery was built in the 1870s to entomb ex-slaves, Native Americans, and war veterans. We must protect these sacred grounds for generations to come.
Our world is changing faster than ever before. We are on a mission to offer educational programs to all generations. From primary learning programs to continuing education classes, we want to improve our community's current level of educational aptitude. With proper knowledge and training programs, we can have informed citizens and a stronger community.
Economic problems mostly stem from a lack of resources and opportunities. We at Tamina Community Development Corporation want to help empower our community with economic literacy and strategic planning. Many artisans and entrepreneurs in the community need a little help to improve. Our goal is to develop a greater vision for their products and services and educate them on different technologies and business strategies to increase profit margins.
Promote Health Awareness
Unfortunately, low-income and poverty-stricken communities are the most unserved demographics in regards to physical and mental health. Help us educate and assist people with better lifestyle choices and strategies for mental challenges. "Your health is your wealth." Tamina Cemetery and Community Project CDC brings awareness and solutions to poverty plaguing our community.
