Spirit of Sankofa

shankofa-bird-lanre-buraimohSankofa is a West African term that highlights the importance of the history of humanity. It is often represented by a Sankofa bird that is flying flying forward while looking backward with an egg in its mouth. The egg symbolizes the future. Looking back reminds one to not forget the past and flying forward is a symbol of the criticality of present action. It is a spiritual calling for all people to appreciate and learn from their collective and individual pasts while living out their present and walking toward their future.

The spirit of Sankofa is the guiding philosophy of 3D Consulting & Development. It reminds me to honor all that you bring to me as we collaboratively work toward shaping a better future for you, your organization, and the people that you serve.
