2009 has thus far been a very busy and productive year for the community and tourism project at Adanwomase in Ashanti
In March, the long-anticipated Visitor’s Centre construction was completed. After construction was complete and the building painted, contractors handed over the keys to the Adanwomase Tourism Management Team (ATMT).
The ATMT, in collaboration with Nature Conservation Research Centre (NCRC) and the EU, executed the Opening Ceremony of the Visitor’s Centre on April 29th. Discussions with many of the invited guests, visiting dignitaries, and community members afterwards confirmed the event was an overwhelming success.
Shortly afterwards, the ATMT set up operations in the new building. The existing furniture and decorations were moved down from the old office to the new Centre. The ATMT is currently planning creative ways to decorate the new centre, ways that will be both informative and enjoyable for tourists.
