Welcome to Medie, Ghana

Moving the world, one community at a time

Through our partnership with the Dagara Music Centre, (based in Medie) we have established strong ties with this community, it’s leadership, schools and community members.

Our experience trips are based in Medie and work closely with Saakumu Dance Troupe. Each trip allows us to support our community led projects through resources and funding.

Over the past 2 years our focus has been on building relationships, establishing a team and identifying the key areas for development.
