When I was invited by Harrow Mayoress Awula Serwah to attend the Inter-generation Family Fun Evening event held at the Civic Centre in Harrow – I was honoured!
This would be a great opportunity to demonstrate the concept I have behind Sankofa Box handicraft workshop – involving children in a fun activity to fundraise for other children roughly their own age in different countries in Africa.
And it was a SUCCESS!
The children immersed themselves in making and decorating the boxes so much so, historian consultant, Kwaku, tried to compete for their attention many times during his “Random History Quiz” games.
The family event was a fundraiser for Harrow Mayor Cllr Nana Asante‘s charities; Flash Musicals and Harrow Community Choir. Part of the money raised from selling the Sankofa Boxes was also donated to the Mayor’s charities which raised £200!
My lovely friend Grace did a fantastic job helping with the handicrafts workshop, and I’m very happy that she has agreed to help me out with further workshops!
So if you’d like to book us to give Sankofa Box handicraft workshops to children at your school, community centre, church or event – contact me today!
Special thank you to Harrow Mayor Cllr Nana Asante, Mayoress Awula Serwah and History consultant Kwaku.
