2017 Field Updates
Stay tuned on this space for direct updates from East and West Africa as we prepare to launch our new project in June 2017. In the meantime, why not learn more about the Sankofa project?! We hope you will consider making a financial donation to help us reach our goal and make this project possible!
In 2010, we filmed Kaba's inspiring life story while he was still a refugee from the Liberian Civil War. Ever since, he learned how to read and write, finished high school, is now graduating university with a bachelors degree in social work, minor in criminal justice, and he also built a successful construction business in Liberia - all while working for Second Chance Africa! His passion for the cause only accentuated now that we have the opportunity to also bring the Sankofa Project to South Sudanese refugees in the east. We named it Sankofa to honor Kaba's journey, and his lifelong mission to help war survivors. In this video, you can learn more about the powerful symbology of the Sankofa bird in West Africa. He wants that bird to fly high, bringing trauma relief to every war-impacted region in Sub-Saharan Africa. We are en route Kaba! Join us. #flysankofa
