Republic Online – CAHP initiative creating employment and promoting education in Osu
With support from the Osu community, CAHP is breaking down barriers in the areas of archeology and education. The project is also serving as a source of employment for the youth. Presently more than 30 community members are employed.
The project is unearthing the history of the Danish Transatlantic Slave Trade, British Colonialism, and post-independence Ghana at Osu Castle. Over nine years over 180,000 artifacts have been unearthed.
A library has been established. Its purpose is to help children in the community improve their reading skills. At the weekends there are lessons on archaeology.
