Who We Are

A Professional & Hard Working Team

Our Story

The Aya Centre is a single-purpose, multi-service organization designed to enhance the learning experience and cultural awareness of persons traveling to Ghana.  We are  also committed to contributing to the development of Ghana in particular and  Africa in general. Towards this end, we are able to provide groups with opportunities to engage in a variety of learning experiences during their stay in Ghana including classroom instruction, community service projects, and internship arrangements.  In short, at the Aya Centre depending on you and/or your group’s unique interests, needs, preferences, and goals we can make all of the necessary arrangements to ensure that your time  in the Republic of Ghana is well spent!

The Aya Symbol

The Aya symbol is one of the famous Adinkra symbols of Ghana.  Although they were first used by the Asante, the Adinkra symbols are now embraced by the entire Ghanaian population and have become uniquely Ghanaian. In addition to providing aesthetic value, the Adinkra symbols also reflect the philosophical outlook of the people in the form of non-verbal expressions of proverbs, parables and maxims.  Aya stands for endurance and defiance of difficulties  in all aspects of human endeavoUr.  It stresses the need for human beings to be strong-willed, self-reliant and resourceful in order to meet the uncertainties of life.  These are the characteristics that  we at the Aya Centre try our best to exemplify.

“I absolutely enjoyed the canopy walk and the tour of Tema. Those, along with the visit to the elementary school really stuck out in my mind.  The trip has surely been a trip of a lifetime that I will never forget.”

Jose Vargas

“I learned so much about this country; I talk to people here in the U.S. and tell about this country as if it were mine.  I will cherish this experience and will never forget it.  This is the greatest study abroad program out there.”

Benyam Goitom

“My trip to Ghana has changed my views, thoughts, and beliefs.  I feel more tolerant, cultured, and possess a yearning to travel again and soon to interact with the surrounding nations to be able to benefit from others.”

Sean Chavez

“There were several components of the trip that I enjoyed.  The Kumasi Open Market was intense; the canopy walk was exciting; and the slave castle was emotional and chilling.  I am happy to have interacted, talked, and made friends with so many people.”

Edmundo Yepez

“This trip was an absolute blast.  There were so many eye-opening and enlightening experiences.  From the canopy walk to the radio show there were so many bonds and memories that will last a lifetime.”

Spencer Heckwolf

“This trip was everything I could ask for and more.  The trip gives you a newfound appreciation.  I was exhausted by the time we got back to the hotel. It was a trip that I will never forget because of the activities: canopy walk, the beach, playing soccer, etc.  I would gladly do it again.”


“The trip was great.   Never in my wildest dreams  did I think I would ever be able to come to Africa.  Every aspect was a gift.  Being immersed into such a rich and vivacious culture was more than I could ever hope for.  Each person I encountered during my 2 weeks contributed a little bit of my life and I will never forget him or her.”

Tammie Velasquez

“This was the trip of a lifetime and I’m glad I had the opportunity to be a part of it.  This was my first time traveling outside of the country and on a plane.  I can say that Ghana was the beginning of my travel endeavors.  I learned so much about Ghana and I look forward to learning about other cultures.”

Nancy Perez

“My experience in Ghana has challenged many misconceptions I’ve had about Africa and have again reminded me to make and effort in not being judgmental based on stereotypes. I believe that I have grown as an individual with a better understanding of social relations and social theories.” forward to learning about other cultures.”
