The Sankofa Center

About Us

Sankofa is an ancient African proverb symbolized by a bird looking backwards. It asks people to revisit their past in order to correct the mistakes that may affect their future. The Sankofa Center uses the dance and music of Africa’s past to foster a healthier future and a better understanding of HIV/AIDS.

The Sankofa Center’s programming is two-fold: touring dance-dramas are aimed at educating margainalized villagers with little access to resources and information; after-school programs target youth between the ages of 13-19+.

The Sankofa Center also conducts classroom educational seminars, provides free on-the spot rapid testing, and links women, men, and youth to treatment. We have reached over 47,000 villagers and 35,000 students since 2006.
