Ghana Trip Testimonials
” Traveling to Ghana with Fatawu and Tiyumba was a most transformative experience. It was incredible to learn from village elders and cultural leaders about the history and cultural perspectives of Ghana. Fatawu has created a beautiful community with the M’Bangba Cultural School. The Tiyumba Ghana cultural immersion trip is a profound and enriching opportunity!“
” The Tiyumba Ghana Trip is a one of a kind trip that has brought us new relationships and a lasting impact on our lives. We encourage people of any age interested in the local culture and landscape of West Africa, to travel with Fatawu!“
” My Ghana cultural immersion experience is something I will cherish forever. The only thing better than my 2016 trip to Ghana would be a repeat in 2017! The drumming, dancing, sites and excursions, markets, many family members and friends of Fatawu – all made for a memorable visit to Ghana. “
