Fundraising for The Sankofa Center:
“Friends of The Sankofa Center” can utilize the organization’s style line to host a fundraiser each semester. The line is made by our Cooperative family in Ghana with proceeds continuing our HIV outreach and support services while providing fair trade jobs for people in the communities we serve in Ghana. We simply mail our clubs a consignment of popular items, information pamphlets on The Sankofa Center & HIV facts. You invite your campus community to the semester fundraising bazaar and afterwards we send our clubs a return label for us to pick up the remaining gift merchandise.
