Dᴐwᴐna is an Ewe word that can mean project, occupation, labor or activity depending on the context in which it is used. The Ewe Language is spoken in West African countries of Ghana, Togo and Benin. 

Worldwide immigrant families regularly attend education council meetings asking why their children cannot maintain their heritage language whilst receiving education in New York City public schools .

The Dowona Initiative is driven by a diverse group of parents in New York City, mostly immigrants, who speak different languages at home and who want to continue to support multilingual education and strengthen educational opportunities for New York's children within the New  York City public school system.
