Sir Sam Jonah, Chairman of Jonah Capital; Nana Kwame Bediako, aka Cheddar, CEO of Wonder World and Petronia Estates, both Patrons of the Pan African Heritage World, joined by Okyeame Kwame, the Rap Doctor, will lead a large number of people on Wednesday 24th March to plant trees at Pomadze Hills, near Winneba Junction, site for the Pan African Heritage Museum.

The Pan African Heritage World Museum, the brainchild of Kojo Yankah, Founder of African University College of Communications (AUCC), is being built to provide the environment for education, healing and inspiration showcasing the history, culture and achievements of the Pan African world as presented by Africans.

Apart from the six-storey building housing the galleries and artifacts, there will be spaces for a Herbal Plant Farm, a Palace of African Kingdoms, a Pan African Heroes Park, and a Festival Park.

The Project is governed by an International Board of Trustees, Academic Council and an Executive Council.

Registered in Ghana, USA and UK as an international NGO, the $30million Museum project is being funded through Donations, Gifts and Grants.

The project was first globally launched virtually in September 2020 by the President of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Among those who have also paid to plant trees on Wednesday are Dr Awal Mohamed, the Minister of Tourism, Arts & Culture; PAHW Academic Council Members Prof Abena P. Busia and Prof Amina Mama; Ghana’s Ambassador to Germany Mrs Gina Blay; Mr Franklin Cudjoe, President of IMANI-Ghana; Mr Akwasi Agyeman, CEO Ghana Tourism Authority; Prof Etienne Ehile, Secretary General of Association of African Universities; Prof PLO Lumumba of Kenya, Dr Arikana Chihombori-Quao; President of ADDI Rabbi Kohain Halevi, Executive Secretary of PANAFEST and Member of the International Board of PAHW, and Brenda Joyce and Mr Ladi Nylander, both Members of the Executive Council of PAHW.

This first phase of the Tree Planting exercise will cover the one-kilometer access road to the Museum site on the hilltop.

A sod-cutting ceremony is scheduled for 5th May 2021, which is also designated as World Heritage Day.

The construction of the Museum is expected to be completed in December 2022 for commissioning in July 2023.
