The Concept

Escape…

is a CATALYST for positive change in the world. We do not think that we alone can change the world. We simply want to do our best to bring together many different IDEAS from around the world to build a place that’s SUSTAINABLE on all levels; that leaves a SMALL FOOTPRINT in the world; and that can set an EXAMPLE for others to follow. We aim to do this by creating examples of alternative incomes through RESPONSIBLEtourism, ALTERNATIVE low cost building methods, natural fertilizers, renewable energy sources, alternatives to sanitation, etc. Through these initiatives, a relationship of LEARNING is formed between those in the COMMUNITY and those coming from outside. A BALANCE can be sought that will meet the needs of the people while PROTECTING endangered species of plants and animals.

Escape… is a site that invites others to join in combining research, public sensitization, education and training.


Location

Escape… is located just outside of the village of Cape Three Points in Ghana, West Africa. The village is positioned at the closest land point to the centre of the world at 4 degrees latitude and 2 degrees longitude and the people within the village are predominantly fishermen and farmers.


The Project

Escape… is a paradise where nature is at hand and also a site of ecological initiatives and experiences. We are nature lovers who wish to live in harmony with the environment and share our dreams with as many people as possible. At the same time a fusion of the needs of life and you… Our door is open to you. Escape… is more than just another place to stay and eat along the coast. It is a place built to have a positive outcome for the community of Cape Three Points; to help conserve aquatic life as well as protect the last remaining coastal forest in Ghana. It is in fact the first eco initiative at Escape... and it helps provide the necessary income to sustain the project for other eco initiatives.


Our current project focuses are:

   • Organic Agriculture

   • Renewable Energy

   • Appropriate Technology Construction

   • Moringa Trees

   • Flora and Fauna


Our Team

A Canadian/ Ghanaian architect, who’s thesis was in low cost construction in Ghana, currently leads this project with a small team consisting of a French volunteer from France Volontaires (formerly AFVP), and two Ghanaians one who a mason by trade and the other a jack of all trades. This multifaceted thinking and combination of complementary knowledge is one of the keys to our unique adventure. In addition to our small base team, we are assisted by friends from Cape 3 Points and other parts of Ghana and from abroad who join in to build our project and participate in our eco life experience.
