Anderson Cooper of CNN AC 360 talks about African Americans returning home to Ghana. He interviews Seestah IMAHKUS owner of the incredible One Africa Guest House ( www.oneafricaghana.com ) a few miles from Cape Coast & Elmina Dungeons. IMAHKUS is from NYC and has been living in Ghana for 20 years. An activist and proponent of Repatriation and lover of the tropical life, she consults with brothers and sisters on how to make their African dream a reality. Ghana is the gateway to Africa. It's a challenge but you have to be there to experience the experience of a lifetime. Let One Africa make it real for you and bring you home to the land of your ancestors. You will never be the same again. Contact them at email: oneafrica_ghana@yahoo.com.

One Africa Health Resort needs your financial support!

Unfortunately, the Ghana Revenue Service (IRS) in Ghana is threatening to shut down One Africa due to an overwhelming tax burden that has fallen upon them.

The dream of One Africa all started in the Cape Coast Castle Dungeons in 1987, where African Ancestors spoke to Seestah IMAHKÜS, changing her life and the life of her Kingman, Nana Okofo, forever.

Nana Okofo and Seestah IMAHKÜS successfully blended their passion and love for Africa and brilliantly used their experience in Human Resources, Public Relations and Tourism to manifest a dream realized. This dream materialized in 1996, which was the birth of One Africa Tours and Specialty Services, Ltd. in Ghana, West Africa.

One Africa has an outstanding reputation and is best known for changing the negative views that have been portrayed by media about Africa, and has been providing educational opportunities and building family relationships thru sponsorship between Africans born in the Diaspora and Ghanaian children. Many of the children touched by One Africa have now completed their schooling and are currently practicing as teachers, nurses, electricians, plumbers, mechanics, seamstresses, and administrators to name a few. One Africa has even facilitated a Ghanaian youth getting to America for emergency surgery, necessary to save his life; today, he is a University Administrator.

One Africa has been featured in numerous documentaries broadcast on BBC England, CATV Paris, France, and CNN with Anderson Cooper 360, ABC Australia and others. One Africa has become an extremely valuable lighthouse of cultural reconnection and celebration for those returning back home to visit and those who plan to make Africa their home.

One Africa services thousands of individuals yearly, attracting people from all over the world. It serves as the host of many educational groups from abroad, including local universities year round.

One Africa provides the local community with employment opportunities and alternative health and wholesome food options by providing training in culinary skills. By doing this, One Africa is promoting health and well being through holistic awareness and best food practices. Anyone that visits their restaurant will reap the benefits of this. It is known that “The best food you will eat in Ghana is at One Africa”, as quoted by their many satisfied visitors.

In 2007, the momentum of One Africa was impacted with the untimely death of Nana Okofo when he was tragically struck by a hit and run driver while on his way to meet his wife, Seestah IMAHKÜS. Although Nana Okofo is no longer here to continue his work, the vision that they shared is still alive and well. Seestah IMAHKÜS remains strong in her efforts to sustain their joint creation of One Africa, a community paradise intended to serve and heal the local and international African Diasporan community.

Your financial contribution to One Africa will help the establishment get through this hardship as they carefully revamp current systems in order to avoid an IRS threat in the future.

One Africa greatly appreciates your kind donation!




VISITOR TESTIMONIES

One Africa has changed my life forever. My entire experience there has etched a solid vision in my mind’s eye. I left there with a higher level of consciousness and determination to build safe spaces for my people, here in America, far beyond my wildest dreams. From this, I am always reminded of who I am, and where I come from, which I use as a much-needed reminder of where I aim to be within the frameworks of creating and sustaining.

Hotep Mama Imahkus, I am honored to be able to give to this cause. I appreciate your dedication and giving spirit to Afrikan people from throughout the diaspora. When you were in Atlanta, you took the time to visit the children at Roots to Fruits and shared so much. Also, my son had the chance to visit One Africa when he went to Ghana with HABESHA. That experience had a powerful impact on him. Meda ase for all you have done and continue to do.

Eye met you in Ghana during our Tour with Dr Umar Johnson. We sat next to one another at the Kings mansion for Maya Angelou's celebration of life service. You also helped me with little Grace, the young girl from the Catholic school. I have been longing for more time with You Queen!
