Obrobibini

White meets Black, Black meets White

Obrobibini is a mix between two words in Twi (local language in Ghana): "Obroni" means "white man", "Obibini" means "black man". Obrobibini represents the union of people from all origins. By bringing people together to share experiences and learn from each other, we develop healthy environments that are necessary for a decent human life with a healthy body and mind.

A platform...

...to unite...in a dynamic equilibrium

About us

Who we are

Our team unites people from different cultures

Obrobibini Peace Complex (OPC) is an association of people from high- and low-income countries that support the freedom and happiness of the people. We love to share our experiences and learnings to foster the healthy environments that are necessary for a decent human life with a healthy body and mind. Meet the team!

What we do

Bringing people together for development

By maintaining centres of learning, OPC provides platforms for people to unfold their full potential. Thereby, we focus on people from low-income countries who do not have the necessary resources to realize their ideas. Learn to live in peace and harmony with your fellow human beings and nature, become part of OPC!

OPC’s first centre is located in Ghana. We aim at contributing to the eradication of the root causes of poverty by building a centre of learning to support the health of the people and the environment through practical education in the areas of sustainable agriculture, healthy diet and sports, herbal medicine, natural sanitation, waste recycling and renewable energy.

We are based in a poor fishing village

Busua, Western Region, Ghana

Busua is a colourful fishing village, one of the country’s most important beach resorts and focal point of Ghana’s nascent surfing scene.
