Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Ghana's Year of Return is set to have lots of visitors and diasporans coming to Ghana. Earlier, it was reported that there was visa shortage in America due to the Year of Return demands.
2019 was labelled by the Ghana government as the Year of Return, as it marks exactly 400 years after the first slave ship left Africa.
The numerous descendants of the slaves who now live in various parts of the world especially in America and the Carribean are expected to revisit their roots.
YEN.com.gh lists amazing places in Ghana that diasporans must visit. It could be said that without visiting any of these places, one has not truly 'returned' to Ghana.
