May greetings Glocal Citizens! It's a new month and on the heals of May Day celebrations in many parts of the world, my guest this week is a shining example of job creation in an emerging economy. Kofi Anku is a shareholder and board member of Ayi Mensah Park, a vibrant, 200-unit townhouse community at the base of at the foot of the Aburi Hills. Developed by IndigoHomes [https://indigohomes.com/] and Mercury Estates, Ayi Mensah Park stands out as Ghana's first neighborhood scale, town house development. The town house typology optimizes land - an increasingly precious resource and reduces the per unit cost of shared infrastructure and amenities. Additionally, as Executive Director of Volta Ghana Investment Company, he has overseen land development in Pokuase, Aburi, and Batsonaa for more than a decade. Pokuase Heights, in particular, is a gated community of high quality residences featuring contemporary designs, attractive interiors and a range of amenities. Residents of Pokuase Heights enjoy community water supply, solar power, a two car drive way, and 24 hour manned security. The community is conveniently located 20km from the heart of Accra; and offers great value and and stunning panoramic views at affordable pricing. In 2015 with EU based partners, Kofi pioneered Ghana’s largest commercial-scale tomato greenhouse. Premium Vegetables Ltd (https://www.facebook.com/Premium-Vegetables-Ltd-1530151953917914/) grows high quality tomatoes, cucumbers and sweet peppers in a 5,000 square meter, commercial green house in the Eastern Region of Ghana. Premium Vegetables supplies select supermarkets and restaurants in Accra with the same exclusive greenhouse varieties used by top chefs around the globe. Water is queen in farming and pristine mountain aquifers feed an automated drip irrigation system for the green house. Cool night temperatures and 300 meter elevation in the Aburi mountains create optimal growing conditions for a wide range of herbs and vegetables. This interview was recorded on location at Kofi's own mountain getaway in the hour before downpours. I hope you all can appreciate the long-missed sounds of place that I hope will again become a part of the soundscape of future discussions.

Kɛ ɔde ɛ Glocal Citizens! I'm greeting you in the father tongue of this week's guest, Esther Armah, Founder and Executive Director of The Armah Institute of Emotional Justice - a global institute providing emotionality education in the context of race, gender and culture.

In addition to celebrating women all month, March 6th marked the 64th anniversary of Ghana's independence which, in the context of my conversation with Esther is a timely point of reflection on how contemporary society continues to process violence, healing and gender in the shadow of imperialism. Esther, a Ghanaian Brit also has acclaimed experience as a multi media journalist, documentary maker and playwright with productions appearing on stages in New York, Chicago and Accra. She's a radio show host, a fellow podcaster as creator of 'THE SPIN' (https://spinitron.com/WBTV/show/195500/The-Spin), and has beed a television political commentator on MSNBC, CNN, GRITtv, BET and MSNBC.

Greetings Glocal Citizens! In preparation for this week's episode, I was excited to spend some time tuning my Francophone ears AND eyes watching episodes of African Woman 2.0 (https://www.youtube.com/c/AfriqueFemme/videos?view=0&sort=dd&shelf_id=1), hosted by my guest, Aissata Sidibé N’Dia, president and founding member of Yelenba-Women in Action. The creation of Yelenba is the result of a collaborative decision to support, through concrete actions, African women and girls, offering them opportunities to improve their daily lives. In addition to her philanthropic pursuits, Aissata is also runs the popular Francophone platform www.afriquefemme.com. Aissata holds an MBA from the University of Maryland in the United States and over 18 years of communications experience. She started her career at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) where she spent thirteen years in various positions in the Communication Department. At the end of 2015, her family relocated to Abidjan, where she worked as a Communication Expert, with the team responsible for the implementation of the Compact Program of the Ivory Coast of the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC). Following her work with MCC, Aissata served as the West Africa Communication Manager at the African Enterprise Challenge Fund (AECF), a Nairobi-based development institution that operates in agribusiness and renewable energies. This position allowed her to expand her network in sub-Saharan Africa and gain a better understanding of the challenges of small private sector businesses and the rural communities they support.
