Hi, what are you looking for?


Nzulezu deserves help !


Nzulezu deserves help !

The community living on stilts in the Jomoro District of the Western Region of Ghana is a major tourism attraction. With over 2000 visitors at peak days paying fees to enter, the 100 year old community is living in abject poverty – only two permanent teachers for the six-classroom unit, broken down structures, no entertainment or sporting facility except a private 14-foot square ‘EcoBar’ selling alcoholic drinks, and a community Centre – all built with rattan beams.

A bigger share of tourism revenue goes to the Ghana Tourism Authority, with parts going to the District Assembly and a paltry sum going to the Community. Two churches, Catholic & Pentecost have rooms for worship. And that is all the 500 population live with. And you get there by canoes paddled by young enthusiastic school leavers who are paid 350cedis a month.

The District Assembly, GTA, the Churches on site can all do better for this community that makes one of the curious tourist destinations in Ghana.


There is a good reason why you should support the African Editors. Not everyone can afford to pay for news right now. That is why we keep our journalism open for everyone to read, including in Ghana. If this is you, please continue to read for free. But if you are able to, then there are three good reasons to support us today.

1. Our quality, journalism is a scrutinising force at a time when the rich and powerful are getting away with more and more.

2. We are independent and have no billionaire owner pulling the strings, so your money directly powers our reporting.

3. It doesn’t cost much, and takes less time than it took to read this message.

Help power the African Editors' journalism for the years to come, whether with a small sum or a larger one. If you can, please support us on a monthly basis from just 1 Ghana Cedi through mobile money number: 0599896099/ +23359989609 and you can be rest assured that you’re making a big impact every single month in support of open, independent journalism. Thank you.
