Ghana

To experience Ghana is to experience hospitality that will move you, landscapes that will stun you, culture that will captivate you, and memories that will shape you. From enticing cuisine, to discussions with chiefs and elders, to nights spent drumming around a bonfire, life in rural west Africa will forever leave a mark on your heart.

As you spend time in Ghana you will trace the steps of the Slaves that were brought from neighboring communities and countries to the coastal castles for transport, explore the onset of nationalism that eventually led to the Ghanaian Revolution, and learn the history of the Denkyira Kingdom, whose people once ruled the Central Region of the Ashantiland Peninsula. As you immerse yourself in Ghanaian culture, you will also have the ability to work on community-led initiatives and participate in several local and ecological excursions. 

OPPORTUNITIES

Participants live in the village of Jukwa, Ghana.
