Miss Tourism Ghana Team participate in ‘Wormanne’ Festival and National Youth Summit

The Miss Tourism Ghana team over the weekend joined the people of Korle-Gonno in Accra, to celebrate Wormanne Festival.

The festival, “Wormanne”, which means our homeland, is a measure put in place to project Korle-Gonno as a community with a rich culture, a place of historic sites and a suitable tourist attraction. 

The event is poised to popularise the sale and use of African products and to portray our music and dance.

During the festival, there was an emotional moment where an act was put together to depict what the forefathers went through and how the slaves were being treated until their freedom.

Speaking to The Spectator, the 2nd Princess, Rejoyce Stacy Hehetror said, “It was a very emotional moment for us. It gave us an opportunity to understand what our forefathers went through.”

She added that the country has a beautiful and enviable culture, calling for the need to adopt ways to project it.

The organisers also took advantage of the “Year of Return” programme, which is to mark 400 years of the first enslaved Africans arriving in Jamestown, Virginia to promote the country’s culture and heritage to African Americans and the diaspora.

In a related development, the team participated in the National Youth Summit on the theme: “Empowering the Youth on Gender Equality for Development” organised by the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection at the Anglican Retreat Centre.

Talking to the youth at the summit, the Head of Operations of Miss Tourism Ghana, Mrs Delphine Brew-Hammond said, “You are the future and have to make sure that you take the future into your own hands by showing the older people what gender equality is about.”
