Support our work with a one-time contribution of $300
Bese Saka is an Adinkra symbol which the Akan of Ghana consider a symbol of power, abundance, & togetherness. The symbol portrays a sack of kola nuts which are a longstanding medium of trade in West Africa. The kola nut represents a currency which holds both value (as as stimulant), material value (as a medium of trade), and cultural value (as a symbol of hospitality). All of these are reasons it is the chosen emblem of the Kola Nut Collaborative.
