SANKOFA Tour of Ghana 🇬🇭
The Sankofa Tour is more than just a trip or vacation, it is fun in the sun, mixed with history, culture and conversations that will provoke a fresh new light on the world, your community and yourself. Bishop Lance Davis, the executive Director of BOOC and Pastor of New Zion Covenant Church in Dolton, IL, has organized Sankofa Tours of Ghana, West Africa for 15 years. Dometi Pongo, a journalist and media professional in Chicago and New York, also had the vision to Sankofa and has organized trips since 2016. Now, these two have joined together to bring this unique experience to travelers of West Africa on a SANKOFA journey.
