Yesterday was the official ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Diaspora Village at Trasacco Springs Estates. It’s a new development that gives people with a strong connection to the diaspora an opportunity to buy land and build properties.
H.E. Dr Erieka Bennett. Head of Mission, Diaspora African Forum (DAF), is behind the project in partnership with Trasacco, one of Ghana’s premier construction and development companies.
All are welcome because the Diaspora Village is designed to honour our African Heritage and celebrate traditions of the diaspora journey. They welcome all Continental and Historic Diaspora who want to experience the rich African traditions that bring us together. This legacy project commemorates the Year of Return and 400 years of African resilience and signifies the reconnection with the motherland.
For information about the properties, contact the Diaspora Africa Forum on the website www.diasporaafricanforum.org
About the Year of Return
The “Year of Return, Ghana 2019” is a major landmark spiritual and birth-right journey inviting the Global African family, home and abroad, to mark 400 years of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in Jamestown, Virginia.
The arrival of enslaved Africans marked a sordid and sad period when our kith and kin were forcefully taken away from Africa into years of deprivation, humiliation and torture.
While August 2019 marks 400 years since enslaved Africans arrived in the United States, “The Year of Return, Ghana 2019” celebrates the cumulative resilience of all the victims of the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade who were scattered and displaced through the world in North America, South America, the Caribbean, Europe and Asia.
