Ujamaa Journey To Ghana 2018
"Experiencing "Sankofa" through the eyes of Ujamaa men has been the most rewarding takeaway from my trip to West Africa", explained Otis Zanders, President / CEO of Ujamaa Place. Sankofa is a "Twi" word meaning "go back and get it" in the Ghanaian language.
For eight years, Ujamaa has embedded African culture in its programming, along with honoring the sacrifices of our ancestors by providing spiritual strength, determination and courage in our mission to overcome barriers and adversity. The "Ujamaa Journey 2 Ghana Team" has a responsibility to share their Sankofa experience with our Ujamaa family and the communities we serve in the Twin Cities.
The cultural immersion experienced from our interaction with the Ghanaian people was welcoming everywhere Ujamaa men traveled in Ghana. The experience for Ujamaa men can be summed up as culturally rich, empowering, spiritual, emotional and grateful.
