Nestled amidst the lush greenery of Ghana’s Oti Region lies Nkonya Tepo, a community brimming with history, serenity, and untapped potential. This hidden gem extends a warm invitation to African Americans seeking a unique and enriching experience, be it a visit or a chance to settle and reconnect with their ancestral roots.

A Land Steeped in History and Natural Beauty:

Nkonya Tepo’s story is intricately woven with Ghana’s rich tapestry. As one of the Volta River Authority’s resettlement communities, it sits peacefully amidst the serene atmosphere surrounding the Volta Lake. The community boasts an abundance of touristic attractions, promising unforgettable experiences. The village’s close association with Ghana’s first president, Kwame Nkrumah, adds another layer of intrigue, hinting at the significance this land once held. Imagine exploring the enchanting Obeng Island, a haven within the lake, or simply soaking in the tranquility of the lakeside setting.

Untapped Potential for Agriculture and Sustainability:

The fertile lands of Nkonya Tepo hold immense potential for agriculture, particularly for shea butter cultivation. The proximity to the lake ensures year-round irrigation, making it an ideal alternative area for this valuable crop. This presents exciting opportunities for sustainable development and economic empowerment, both for the community and potential settlers.

A Legacy of Education and a Welcoming Embrace:

Nkonya Tepo holds the distinction of being the most educated community amongst all the Nkonya settlements. This strong emphasis on education fosters a progressive and welcoming environment, where knowledge and cultural exchange are valued. The community warmly embraces visitors and newcomers, creating a space for genuine connection and shared experiences.

A Place to Connect with Roots and Build a Future:

For African Americans seeking to connect with their heritage, Nkonya Tepo offers a unique opportunity. The historical significance of the OTI Region, coupled with the community’s welcoming spirit, creates a powerful bridge to the past. Moreover, the potential for agriculture and entrepreneurship presents exciting possibilities for building a fulfilling future in this beautiful and serene setting.

A Stone’s Throw from Accra and a Conducive Climate:

Accessibility is another advantage. Nkonya Tepo is just a 3-hour drive from the bustling capital, Accra, making it easily reachable for day trips or extended stays. Additionally, the climatic conditions are highly conducive for shea butter trees, creating a familiar and comfortable environment for those accustomed to warmer temperatures.
