Dawn Dickson, a famous entrepreneur and investor, has relocated to Ghana and is leading a ground-breaking program to assist expatriates in buying property and constructing homes in Asebu Pan African Village located in Ghana’s Central Region.

Dickson has already supported more than 30 people on their quest to acquire plots in this thriving neighborhood, promoting intercultural awareness and community growth, according to Black News. Dickson’s goal is to be a bridge between Black Americans and Africans, establish relationships, and promote a sense of belonging.

“I moved to Ghana to explore new opportunities and be a bridge for those who want to make that leap towards living and investing in Africa but don’t know where to start. I’ve always wanted to pursue a career in real estate but never made the time…until now,” she said on her YouTube page.

The Asebu Pan African Village offers diasporans a perfect setting to settle down and build a thriving community with its stunning scenery and rich cultural history. According to Ghana Web a total of 5,000 acres of land were set aside by the Asebu chief Otatakyi Dr. Amanfi VII in 2019 to Africans in the diaspora to honor the “Year of Return.” More than 600 people have so far purchased land in the neighborhood, which is expanding quickly. Individuals have greatly benefited from Dickson’s advice and knowledge in navigating the land purchase procedure and realizing their aspirations of owning a home.

Dickson recently started an exciting raffle to generate money for the Asebu Pan African Village as part of her unwavering drive for community empowerment. She said that participants can enter to win a free plot of land worth $2,500 by paying $25 each for a ticket or $75 for four through July, with all administrative costs paid. This offer not only gives someone the chance to own a piece of the land, but it also directly supports the expansion and improvement of the Village.

“The lush landscapes and rich cultural heritage make it an ideal destination for those seeking a connection to their roots and a sustainable future. Less than 30 minutes from Cape Coast’s beaches and historical sites and three hours from the capital city Accra,” Dickson said of the Village. “The winner will receive one (1) plot of land, surveyed, marked and captured using state-of-the-art drone technology. It’s your canvas, waiting for your dreams to unfold,” the investor and entrepreneur added.

Dickson has more than 23 years of expertise in company development, technology, and entrepreneurship. She has won multiple honors and recognitions and has been profiled in numerous publications, including the covers of Black Enterprise, Forbes, INC Magazine, Fortune, Fast Company, Venture Beat, Huff Post, Essence Magazine, and others.
