African-American Diaspora, Pan Africanist, PhD, and Pod Cast Host of PhD on Welfare, Dr. Wanda Evans-Brewer is Origen Destination’s, “Go in to sow in” Featured Profile. A Native of Detroit, MI. having traveled across the continent, leaving her International mission footprints to support children with disabilities in Uganda, Dr. Evans-Brewer now residing in Ghana is bringing in her new year by providing access to water in Kpone.
We have selected two Cameroon-based organizations, Reach Out NGO and Education Fights Aids Cameroon that currently work to address the socio-economic conditions of families throughout parts of Cameroon with a focus on empowerment, self-sufficiency, advocacy, and entrepreneurship. Origen Destination believes that their causes are closely aligned with its own that encompasses a core belief that true economic freedom and prosperity comes when barriers that manifest as poverty, sickness, lack and destitution are removed. In reality, these barriers are nothing more than systemic forms of suppression, depression, oppression and discrimination that only afford prosperity to a select exclusive few. JOIN THE CAMPAIGN
There are a great number of developments happening on the Continent. Diaspora partnerships, NGO's and Philanthropic seeding continually makes the difference.

In anticipation of her upcoming birthday, Dr. Evans-Brewer’s acknowledged that she has always sought out ways to gift others rather than herself. Instead of spending the day being the birthday recipient, Dr. Evans-Brewer would instead be the birthday donor. This year marked another opportunity to do what she does best… Go in to sow in. Dr. Evans-Brewer stated that her husband suggested providing the gift of water to the community. In reflection, Dr. Evans-Brewer went on to state that access to water in her husband’s hometown was difficult for many people to access. Having recently purchased a pump for their home’s water supply, Dr. Evans-Brewer expressed the frustrations people residing in the community faced and how they had to travel distances to get water for their homes.
After careful planning and contemplation, Dr. Evans-Brewer took the appeal to her social media platforms for support and people responded. Dr. Evans-Brewer’s campaign contributed a substantial amount of water in truckloads to the people in their local Ghanaian community. There was an outpouring of support for this initiative and a community rallying in response to this water initiative.

Approximately 6,000 Plus miles across the Atlantic Ocean, in the Central region of Asebu Ghana, one of many sub-states making up the Fante Central Region of Ghana, is Ohiaba Village.
Ohiaba pronounced, “Oh-ee-yah-ba”, was established centuries ago by the Fante, a Royal Chiefdom, seated in power, whose history dates back to the earliest known centuries. This tribal lineage is rooted in Royalty. The Mfantsefo or Fante are an Akan people making up the Central regions of what is present-day Ghana.
With a very unique and rich history, the Leopard insignia symbolizes its honorary and heroic past still holds true today.
The Central Regions Chiefdom, people-communities and territories, represents an intertwining, yet intriguing historical significance that has helped to shape Ghana’s nation and culture, preserves what it has today, its legacy. However, that legacy could not be solidified without first recognizing the scattered parts and people of its history.
Chiefdom making up many provinces across the country have more than leveraged opportunities to not only welcome the Diaspora back home but sincerely demonstrated their collective resolve towards rebuilding what was violently shattered by the vestiges of the transatlantic slave trade. The Familial ties that bind a nation of people to its cultural, way of life, but most of all to each other.
As a nation of people, many in the Ghanaian Chiefdom, representing various communities, are amongst leaders across the Continent who have joined in the collective efforts to provide safe passageway to its returnees. Rejoined in the effort, are the many descendants to returning bloodlines, who’ve equally made it their business, to not only reacquaint a severed Diaspora to their roots and familial ties, but to insure that it never happens again.
Nana Korsah has been in his current capacity since his ascension to the Fante Chiefdom in 1985. Nana is a leader who resides within the very community he leads. Korsah along with his co-leaders in the Ohiaba Village recently installed their newest Chiefs of Development in New Ohiaba, Mikayel & Keziyah Yasha’ral. The significance of this appointment has continued to solidify the commitment of Native Continental Chiefdom to embrace its scattered Diaspora population.
This journey is not for everybody but for the ones who believe that they have been called to a good work, greater than themselves, and are willing to undertake it at its rawest of states and forms. Yes, that includes the land development too. Ghana has afforded many returnees a quiet abode but also opportunities to invest in its resources, other land and socio-economic development initiatives.
Some might ask, “Why now? Why here?” Well, the scriptural reference in Devariym aka, Deuteronomy 29:29 says all that needs to be said, “The secret things belong to the LORD our GOD, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of.” Another reference might include one from Mishlei aka Proverbs 3:5-6, “5 Trust in El Yahuah with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths.” Elders Mikayel and Kaziyah did just that, walked by faith towards their promise, allowing their Love and Faithfulness to lead them right to Ohiaba Village!
This husband and wife team touched ground on Ghana in January of 2021. In a leap of faith, Miyka’al and Keziyah departed the U.S. to join the Asebu Pan-African Village District. Both hit the ground running with the first of many investments under their NGO, Shalum Disciples.
The most recent of their initiatives was to commit to the development of the Ohiaba Village Community’s children’s academy. Please take a moment to check out what’s happening at Ohiaba Village in Ghana. To learn more about Nana Gye Nyame and Nana Adwoa Ampomah, their pilgrimage home, and community development initiatives, visit links below. We’ve already had a chance to visit Ohiaba to behold its beauty, offer our prayers, dedication and seeded as much love as possible!
