A note from Slyboots founder, Griffin Brady:

The great tree has fallen.  The work that Bernard Woma imparted to the world can not be understated.  His influence as a performer, educator, entrepreneur, family man and ambassador have been revered in every corner of the world.

In his life, he was referred to as a "national treasure of Ghana".  In light of his death, we are charged with the quest to honor him and the light that he shared with the world.   We are calling on Bernard Woma's Army to help us preserve his legacy and bring the SAAKUMU Dance Troupe back to continue their mission of preserving and celebrating African culture and promoting positive social change through cultural arts education and performance.
We are raising money to help offset the overhead costs and upfront expenses including:

  • Flights
  • Artist Housing
  • Travel and Food Expenses

Most of us still “owe 5000”— so please consider supporting this important cause.
