About

ARE YOU OUTGOING & LIKE MEETING NEW FRIENDS?

DO YOU LOVE COMMUNITY EVENTS, FESTIVALS, FAIRS?

WANT TO HELP SUPPORT A GREAT CAUSE?

LIKE MEETING PEOPLE FROM OTHER PLACES?

We are looking for "Festival buddies" to work hand and hand with a great group of international interns visiting Sacramento from Europe to promote Sankofa and raise funds & awareness about the charity. Interns will be placed in various locations around Sacramento during community fairs, etc.

At The Sankofa Center we empower people to change lives and foster healthy behaviors to prevent, detect, and treat HIV/AIDS. We do this through utilizing traditional African dance & drama fused with health information to educate people of all ages in Ghana. We are committed to providing free counseling, rapid HIV/AIDS testing and connecting people with HIV/AIDS to local medical resources. We value equipping the next generation with tools to wipe out HIV/AIDS with a compassionate and open-minded ethos. Since 2004 we have educated 35,000 students about HIV prevention, 50,000 community members on HIV transmission, and have provided over 4,000 individuals with free rapid HIV testing with links to care. Our volunteers are our biggest assets. Even from working offsite in California, they make our project in Ghana smooth. We are proud to tell that people from different geographical location would like to help us in the cause.
