Overview
August 2019, is exactly 400 years after the arrival of the first recorded landing of a slave ship in Virginia, which saw the acceleration of the horrendous Middle Passage, hundreds of descendants of former enslaved Africans will make a triumphant return to the land of our ancestry. The trip will take us to Ghana: the land of Kwame Nkrumah-the father of Ghana’s independence and a co-founder of the Organization of African Unity; the country where the great pan-Africanist Dr W. E. B. DuBois spent his final years; the land where Ashanti Kings still hold court and mediate disputes in time-honoured traditions passed down through generations; the land that has preserved more slave dungeons used in the transatlantic slave trade than any other country on the continent. Ghana was the first sub-Saharan African country to gain its independence from Europeans and is today a thriving democracy, yet its traditions, customs and culture are almost undiluted.

Biney is the kindest gentlest soul I've ever encountered. He made my group and I feel at how despite the fact that we were 5000+ miles away from home. From the moment we meet he taught invaluable lessons about life and about Ghana's rich culture and history. If you are traveling

Biney was born for this. Having visited Ghana for the first time and travelling solo, I was a bit apprehensive, but from the moment Biney Yao met me, those feelings subsided. Care, attention to detail, going the extra mile and having fun were all part of this extraordinary
