WHO WE ARE
AN EXTRAORDINARY SOCIAL ENTERPRISE
CHANGING THE STATUS-QUO OF AFRICA-CHINA RELATIONS
BEHIND THE NAME
Kente is the traditional cloth worn by the Royal household of the Ashanti Kingdom, is symbolic of the wealth, rich tradition and culture of the Ghanaian people and by extension Africa. Silk with its historical trading routes and economic importance, gave China strong trade, historical and cultural ties with the rest of the world.
These two items are thus individually imbued with great historical relevance and symbolism to Africa and China; combined they are representative of the links between the two.
