Make an Impact
African Conversations & Connections Tours is excited to announce our local economic empowerment agenda for 2020 & beyond, our commitment to supporting the inclusive development of women in this mountainous region of Ghana - where our founder, Akosua, hails from - thereby providing greater opportunities for themselves, their families and their communities. African Conversations & Connections Tours commits to dedicating 20% of our net annual profits to projects supporting women entrepreneurship in Kwahu.
African Conversations & Connections Tours is a firm believer that entrepreneurship provides opportunities for women to earn their own incomes while recognizing that older women (who are often tasked with raising grandchildren due to their children seeking 'greener pastures' in the cities) face unique challenges when starting a venture - namely gender, age, and location.
Akosua and her team provide women entrepreneurs (aspiring and nascent) in Kwahu with:
One-on-one business counseling
Helping them to build their business skills enabling them to earn reliable incomes for their families for the long term.
