Both symbols that appear in the YSFI logo are Adinkra symbols from Ghana.
NKONSONNKONSON CHAIN LINK
It is a symbol of unity…a reminder to contribute to the community and that in the community lies strength.
YSFI understands this Ghanaian community message and strives to embody unity, community service, and community achievement through its programming.
DWENNIMMEN RAM’S HORNS
It is a symbol of humility together with strength. The ram will fight fiercely against an adversary, but it also submits humbly to slaughter, emphasizing that even the strong need to be humble. This symbol represents mind force, body force, and force of character.
YSFI seeks to enable others to embrace this Ghanaian message of strength, hence the term “survivor” in the organization’s name. Although, YSFI intends to aid the disadvantaged, we recognize that it takes strength to endure some of life’s most difficult experiences. Yet, our clients find the courage to reach out and seek help.
