The Sankofa Center
DescriptionAt The Sankofa Center we empower people to change lives and foster healthy behaviors to prevent, detect, and treat HIV/AIDS. We do this through utilizing traditional African dance & drama fused with health information to educate people of all ages in Ghana. We are committed to providing free counseling, rapid HIV/AIDS testing and connecting people with HIV/AIDS to local medical resources. We value equipping the next generation with tools to wipe out HIV/AIDS with a compassionate and open-minded ethos. Since 2004 we have educated 35,000 students about HIV prevention, 50,000 community members on HIV transmission, and have provided over 4,000 individuals with free rapid HIV testing with links to care.
We also believe in poverty reduction in the communities we serve. Therefore we’ve created Co-ops of Ghanaian women who become empowered by sustainable income making the globally inspired style line. Armed with fair-trade income Sankofa's Women lift their families and communities into prosperity. All proceeds benefit our free HIV services in Ghana.
