The Sankofa Principle – Looking Back to Move Forward

The word Sankofa comes from the Akan community in West Africa and is translated to mean, "We must go back and reclaim our past so we can move forward; we must understand why and how we came to be who we are today."
The Sankofa symbol represents the Akan quest for knowledge – knowledge that can only be achieved through diligent examination of the past.  Sankofa is depicted visually as a bird flying forward while its head is turned to the past. 

Just as the Akans believe that the past can provide invaluable insight when planning for the future, we at Sankofa Financial Group believe that the fist step in achieving financial freedom is to identify and correct unhealthy spending patterns and credit decisions that have hindered your progress. 

We will work with you (individually, as a family, or with your business) to discover your weaknesses in the areas of planning, spending and saving.  We will then partner with you to develop a strategy to correct these roadblocks and to start moving forward with a more healthy understanding of how today’s decisions impact tomorrow’s dreams. 

Don't let prior mistakes keep you in tied down.  We can help you reclaim your past and build a bridge to a bright new future - the Sankofa way!
