Tribal Hat and Sash

Nigeria c. 2013

Through a partnership between the Tokbet Community Development Association and U.S. Mission Nigeria’s Small Grants Program, a remote Nigerian community received a health clinic to provide vital services to residents. The Tokbet Community Clinic provides maternity care, prenatal checkups, HIV/AIDS testing, counseling, and treatment. At the opening ceremony for the clinic, Tokbet community leaders adorned Deputy Chief of Mission James P. McAnulty in the traditional attire of a Tokbet leader in honor of his visit. He wore the sash and hat as he and community leaders lead a procession to the clinic for the ribbon cutting ceremony.
