village nesin the heart of Volta Region (43km) south of Hohoe and less
than 200km Norht of Accra lies the beautiful peaceful village of Tai
Atome.The village is surrounded by by an indigenous tropical forets with
high floral concentration.
In the forest one could find the endangered ,playful and rather sacred True Mona monkeys .Through the intrumental of Nature Conservation Research Center (ncrc) SNV Netherlands development organisation ,Ghana peace corps and with funding from the USAID the village recognosed the value of protecting this natural wonder and as a result tourist attraction was declared as Community-Based Ecotourism Site.
But unfortunately,the sanctuary is in dire need of guest house to replace the old 4 bed rooms one which was built by the community with local materials like thatch and clay but later roofed with iron sheets.
Not only old but having cracks which calls for attention for new one.So, the sanctuary needs $3500:00 to construct a 15 bed room with restaurant.It also facing challenges like missing items anytime visitors come are sent to stay with families in the community. can be curbed if only e have adequate accommodation facilities available if and when more tourists throng the attraction.We need donation of $25:00 from individuals,volunteers ,companies,families,adults,youths,churches,schools and many more. Someone may ask what are the benefits of having the guest house?But I can assure you that having the guest house will enhance development by alleviating poverty in the community.
- 2)It will bring sustainable income generating source to the community.
- 3)Having the guest house will promote tourism in the area and make them conserve the delicate and sensitive ecological,ecological and cultural resources in their environment..
- 4) Having the facility will offer potential benefits to the individuals,community and the nation as a whole in the areas such as creation of employment,foreign exchange earnings and improving the welfare of the local people among others.I am optimistic that by having the guest house ,will yield results of the purpose for is been advocated for based on the mentioned benefits derived from the guest house.
