Day 5: Ancient Kente and Adinkra villages, divine chocolate, Kuapa Kokoo and village life

• Our journey through Ashanti history starts by visiting the traditional villages of Adanwomasie and Ntonso.  Our first stop is Adanwomasie, the birthplace of Ghana’s rich colorful Kente cloth.  

• After lunch, we depart Kumasi heading south to the villages of Bonkro and Breku.  Most Ghanaians live in remote communities and work as subsistence farmers with some having larger farms growing cocoa, palm oil, citrus or rubber trees. 

• Our aim is to connect the communities to the conservation of their environment showing them the benefits through ethical tourism.  Locals have stopped cutting trees and hunting animals and in return, we have built them a school, accommodation they can rent out to visiting tourists and a reception center for them to collect a payment, sell souvenirs, food and drinks.  

• After, we will visit local representatives for Kuapa Kokoo Cooperative which is a Fair-Trade organization that ensures its members get a good price for the sale of their Cocoa and they also work hard to promote women in business.  

• This is where the chocolate process starts and we will learn how the cooperative is improving working conditions for farmers, banning child labor and ensuring women’s voices are heard.
