Accra to London trip

Members of the expedition.

The Ghanaian expeditioners, who embarked on a trip from Accra to London by road, are hoping to raise US$1 million to help students in rural areas bridge the digital divide.

Part of the funds will be given to EduSpots to build about 50 education spaces named ‘Spots’ in Ghana, with a focus on female empowerment and environmental sustainability.

Members of the team on Sunday made history after successfully arriving in London on an epic journey.

Speaking to Benjamin Offei-Addo on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Monday (7 August), a member of the team, Richard Osei Anim said they will soon roll out a global initiative.

“There is a method to our madness,” he said. “We are not just going on a jolly or frolicking, we are looking to raise a digital catalyst fund of about US$1 million.”

“Kwabena Ayirebi, a director at Afreximbank has another project supporting EduSpots and EduSpots helps literacy, and that is a one-off project that he is doing but the bigger and larger picture is to launch a catalyst fund focused on rural areas,” he said.

The Ghanaian adventurers started the expedition of driving from one continent to the other from Accra on 23 July 2023 through Aburi, Nsawam, Kumasi, Sunyani to Dormaa and then entered Cote d’Ivoire.

They were 13 people when they started but one person because of the nature of his job had to stop in Senegal and two others also dropped off in Morocco.

They arrived in London on Sunday (6 August) having moved through Cote d’Ivoire, Mali, Guinea, Senegal, Mauritania and Morocco in Africa and entered Europe by a ferry to Spain.
