WHO WE ARE
At the heart of The Garveytown project is a group of committed Pan Africans who wish to create a living shrine as a memorial to those who lost their lives and to those who survived the Maangamizi ( Swahili meaning hellacaust of chattle colonial and neo colonial enslavement. Also the continuing of assault on our people wherever they have come into contacts with the european). Garveytown will serve as a place where Africans can live in an African environment or retreat to for a length of time. Our mission is to provide our community with advanced strategies to satisfy today’s demand in the area of homes and vacations on the African continent. We are Africans who possess a wide range of skills and training, who have come together to create a new kind of living experience.
Garveytown gives our community for the first time the ability to buy rent or timeshare homes on the motherland. We believe the ability to visit or stay for some time in Garveytown before you commit your self to this important investment decision is vital, to ensure you know what you are buying. Garveytown is a part of the African Reparations Movement and hopes to offer the first Pan African resettlement and holiday venue. This will include tours to areas of importance in the history of Ghana.
We offer full rites of passage for those who wish to integrate into Ghanaian society, including languages, culture and customs workshops. You will learn the history of West Africa and see the effects that the enslavement of African’s had on the Ghana we see today and the attempts being made to repair the damage. Our African ancestors who were victims of the European genocide, called commonly the transatlantic slave system, demand justice for their suffering during the Maangamizi. In order to show our respect for our ancestors who continue to encourage us in our fight for Reparations we intend to reunite two halves of a family separated by time, distance and the ravages of the Maangamizi.
