Sankofa Initiative on Facebook

The Sankofa Initiative through West Elmwood Housing Development Corporation began as an idea in 2011 in hopes of deepening the connection of West End residents by fostering cultivation of land, lives, and community. 

The Sankofa World Market seeks to improve nutritional, economic and social opportunities in Providence’s West End. It offers affordable, convenient, culturally appropriate, fresh, healthy and locally-produced food and connects customers with West End craftspeople, artists and entrepreneurs. Sankofa World Market is the West End’s public marketplace, where neighbors access important community information, build relationships with each other and participate in lively community life.
