Excitement has been mounting steadily at Amani ya Juu as we have watched the new center in Liberia come into its own. Now, many months after the first steady clicks were heard coming from the foot pedals of new machines, Amani Liberia is making its official debut. This weekend and next Amani Liberia is hosting the Sankofa Fashion Show. Sankofa means “look to the past, walk to the future.” Throughout the show, the women of Amani Liberia will walk the audience through the pain of destruction, the long hard work of rebuilding, and on into their hope for a redeemed future. The collective experiences these women share is a witness to true transformation.
We will be posting news, stories, and photos from the Sankofa fashion show as soon as we can. For now, we are so proud to unveil some of the products our sisters in Liberia have been making.
