The Charlottesville-Winneba Foundation is pleased to announce that we are organizing two trips from Charlottesville to Winneba, Ghana in the coming months, scheduled around Winneba's two major annual festivals:
1) The first trip will depart on or about Dec. 29, 2021 and coincide with the Fancy Dress (Kakamotobi) Festival on New Year's Day
2) The second trip will depart on or about May 2, 2022 and coincide with the Aboakyer Festival on the first Saturday in May
Both trips will last approx. 10-12 days.
