In this episode of EGUA - Marketplace, we discuss our fundraising initiative for the opening of AKONGUASUA DAN to serve as the new headquarters for AKONGUASUA.

AKONGUASUA is the central institution of learning within Aakhuamuman Amaruka Atifi Mu (Akwamu Nation in North America). AKONGUASUA is a combination of the Twi-Akan terms Akongua and sua. The term Akongua is a descriptive form of the term gua (adwa), both meaning seat, chair, throne. Sua means to learn, to study. Together, AKONGUASUA describes the nature of our institution being that of learning from the Ancestral seat. 

The term 'dan' means a building or sanctuary. AKONGUASUA DAN will be the physical edifice housing our institution addressing the following three areas: Nkom (ritual obervances, healing), Adesua (Classes, Trainings, Workshops, Broadcasting, Lectures) and Nhoma ne Adwuma (Publishing, Distribution, Employment, Entrepreneurship). AKONGUASUA DAN is an institution open to all Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (African~Black) people.

We will examine the various programs and services that we provide to the community for free and how the opening of the center will allow us to serve the community in a greater capacity. See our AKONGUSUA page for details:
