Overview
We are woven into Kente Cloth which symbolizes that we are never alone, but a part of a family, a community, a village, a country, a continent, rich with love, peace, joy, and humanity. Brilliantly designed in bold colors: yellows, reds, blues, oranges, greens, purples, browns, and black.   In our Kente Cloth is our language Twi, which reminds us to cry out to YASU – the LAMB OF GOD that gives us purpose. So, in exaltation and praise, I shout to the nations of the world that - I am a child of GOD, I am African, I am a Masterpiece, I am Enough.   Come with me as I explore the intricacies of Africa as intertwined in the story of our Kente Cloth. Akwaaba - Welcome!
