EOTO's vision is to empower Black people on the ground of community building and fostering Black leadership in every realm of society - culture, education, economy and politics. Each One Teach One (EOTO) e.V. started out as a community based project for education and the empowerment of Black people in Berlin. Since its taking the role of one of the core organizations of the governmental initiative Demokratie leben! (Living Democracy!), EOTO is growing into an organization reaching out to communities throughout Germany and the international realm of the African diaspora. EOTO was founded in 2012. In March 2014 the local reference library opened its doors to the public. Today it presents roughly 6000 works of people of African descent. Each One Teach One wants to make African diasporic cultural wealth accessible to Black youth, cultural producers and scholars.
