Sankofa has been awarding full scholarships in Ghana since 2002. However, for administrative reasons, the scholarship recipients have been limited to the Ashanti and Greater Accra Regions. Under the new Program, scholarships can be awarded nation-wide.
Sankofa’s mission is to enhance the quality of life of Africans living in Africa, especially those living in rural areas, and it has been doing so since 1993. To accomplish this, Sankofa provides a consistent and organized foundation, along with the technical guidance and assistance needed so that problem areas can be addressed effectively and efficiently at the grass roots level. Short to mid-term, the expected outcome is continued growth and development to help ease everyday suffering of the people. Long-term, the expected outcome is the creation of communities and people who are self-sustaining.
Sankofa is a 501c(3) public charity.
