Why Bakari Inc.

“Because I want to make a difference in people’s lives. Bakari was developed from a culmination of my own life experiences and truly believing people can make a comeback, at any time of their life. Bakari was established because the Lord blessed me to overcome my situation.

 

The thing is, I didn’t come up without resources. I wasn’t disadvantaged. I came up in a stable household with two parents and plenty of resources. But I made the wrong choices and made bad decisions, including drugs, alcohol and the consequence of prison. In my mid 30’s, the Lord blessed me, and I saw the light to turn things around in my life and committed to do something good and positive for the community, for kids, and for adults.  - David Goodson - Founder

Our Philosophy

About Bakari

Bakari means, “one who shows great promise”, and that’s an idea that I believe everybody shows and has great promise and tremendous potential, even if they don’t realize it yet. I now know that for myself, that I have promise. That philosophy is what I believe.”

Why Waterloo, Iowa?

“This is easy. God has His hands on our lives… this location is home. I love to travel. But I love home. This spot right here, I grew up one block from here. We are going to do all we can to make this place, this community, and grow this place.”

What is the future of Bakari?

“Even when the time comes for my retirement, the future for Bakari is that we never close its doors, because the job is NEVER done. I believe that Bakari should and will run better without me here in the future, because this is bigger than me. What we provide to our children and families is needed, and our belief in our children, that they hold great promise, will continue to be our philosophy and why we do what we do.”
