Ada Tourism Stakeholders Association in Ghana
David Ahadzie formed a team of tour guides under the name Island Tour Services. They were initially six in number and today they are a total of 28 tour guides.
He designed ecotourism packages, produced a local tourist guidebook, and started guiding visitors using his entrepreneurial spirit in Ada Foah, Ghana.
As they grew, they formed an association called Ada Tourism Stakeholders Association made up of local boat operators, hotel/guest house operators, local gin and vegetable growers, culture dance group and tour guides.
The activities of the association, such as organizing clean up exercises or regulating prices from a common office, enable us to address concerns and interests of various groups for mutual benefits.
His community largely benefits also as tourism has created hotel chains where many youth work for secured income.
