We express our thanks and appreciation for submitting an online registration form, thus registering your interest in attending the Barbados Pilgrimage in May 2024. We look forward to an enjoyable and enlightening time together.

We will begin accepting payment of the Registration fee as of February 19, 2024. The deadline for payment of the Registration fee is March 31, 2024. Please send your proof of payment to [email protected] detailing the name(s) and number of registrant(s) paid for, date of payment, and amount paid. We will confirm receipt of payment.

To facilitate the smooth planning for the Pilgrimage, a simplified flat registration fee structure has been adopted. The registration fee will entitle each registrant to admission, some transportation to planned activities for the pilgrimage, and to the “Official Sankofa Pilgrimage Souvenir bag” containing Pilgrimage memorabilia including the official program of events, a personalized registration badge and other essentials for the pilgrimage.

Registration Fee:

  • Individual Registration – USD $110.00
  • Children 5 years and under – Free

We look forward to seeing you in Barbados this May.
