Ghana is often described as “Africa’s friendliest country” and as we enjoy the country's natural beauty, history and culture we can expect a warm “AKWAABA!” everywhere we go.

 

After exploring the capital Accra we travel north to visit Traidcraft partners Serendipalm to see how the palm oil in Traidcraft's Clean & Fair household cleaning range is produced. Moving further north, we spend time with Kuapa Kokoo and the farmers who not only grow the cocoa for Divine Chocolate but also own a majority share in the company. We'll learn about cocoa production and visit projects funded by the Fairtrade premium.

 

In Kumasi, at the heart of the Ashanti region, we gain an insight into Ghana’s cultural heritage before heading back to the coast where we learn about the history of the slave trade with a visit to Cape Coast Castle Museum. On our return to Accra we see recycled products being made by Trashy Bags and then head out to visit Fairtrade banana growers and enjoy a river cruise in the Volta region.
