Akwaaba!



Add your Welcome!

All over Ghana, Akwaaba! is recognised as meaning Welcome! Visitors to the country will see it as soon as they arrive at Kotoka International Airport. Akwaaba means Welcome in the Akan languages, but how would you say it in your local language to a visitor to your home, town or village in Ghana?
Email GhanaPlaNa@gmail.com to get your local Welcome added to the list.

Tell us: the name of your town or village, the language (it doesn't matter if other languages are also spoken there), how you would say Welcome, and your name (as you would like it to appear here).
