Old Fadama Slum Tour in Accra

3 h
About this activity
Meet your local guide and head off on foot to Accra’s Old Fadama area. As the capital city of Ghana, Accra attracts high numbers of people in search of a better way of life. Many are drawn here from rural areas across the country in the hope of improved living conditions, and this puts a strain on the city’s resources. During your tour, learn how Accra has expanded and grown to accommodate the influx, and meet some of its residents.
Stroll through Old Fadama and observe people going about their daily lives. Life isn't particularly easy in a slum such as this, yet many of the residents maintain a positive outlook in the face of challenging circumstances.
Hear all about it from your guide, and see locals hard at work salvaging discarded appliances and machinery. Learn how unwanted items are turned from waste into profit, to earn money for the families and help to keep landfill sites clear. From old computers, fridges and fans to broken microwaves, televisions, radios and industrial machinery, nothing escapes the eye of these resourceful, hard-working people.
With your guide to translate if necessary, take time to talk to the people you meet throughout your tour, and perhaps share stories of mutual interest from your part of the world. After exploring the area and learning more about Old Fadama’s working community, return to the start point where your tour finishes.
