When asked to describe Kwadwo Gyasi, one exceedingly satisfied tour participant had this to say, “he’s our Black Pearl - so precious, valuable, rare, full of wisdom, honor and ethical educational excellence.” In addition to being president of one of the fastest growing young companies in Atlanta, Kwadwo is also a loving husband, dedicated father, inspiring educator, and a highly sought after photographer. He is a tireless worker who is passionate about improving himself as well as the quality of life for all African people.

A magna cum laude graduate of Morehouse College with a degree in African-American Studies (BA), Kwadwo finished as the top ranking scholar of his program. He also attended the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign where he earned a degree in African Studies (MA). He has received numerous awards and honors for his exemplary leadership and scholarship. While a student at Morehouse, Kwadwo received the prestigious Merrill Award to attend the University of Ghana at Legon for one full academic year. During his graduate studies he returned to Ghana a third time for an intensive summer program at the University of Cape Coast’s Department of African Languages.

Kwadwo is an innovate and inspiring teacher with over ten years experience in the classroom. Never one to shy away from challenging his students to think and create, his warm sense

of humor, attention to detail and genuine concern make him a favorite amongst both students and parents.  He has taught at nearly every level in both public and private institutions including Atlanta Public Schools where he served as grade level chairperson at Humphries Elementary. Currently, he teaches at Nsoromma, a private independent African-Centered School.  

No stranger to Africa, over the past eight years Kwadwo has traveled to and lived in several West African countries including Ghana, Togo, Burkina Faso and Mali. He is fluent in Ghana’s most widely spoken national language (Akan) which he teaches to children and adults alike in Atlanta, GA. He received his start leading groups to Africa in 2000 when he served as a volunteer for a not-for-profit company conducting tours for Black college students in the Chicago area. He later became the director of that  same company’s youth division where he facilitated tours, crafted curriculum and oversaw a host of other responsibilities. When asked why he decided to create Adiama Services and Tours he states, “African people the world over share a common destiny. We also share a common responsibility to work together in pursuit of a future that is free and self-determined. It is my hope that Adiama will play an important role in facilitating healing, building functional unity, and increasing awareness amongst our people, especially our youth. I’m concerned with empowerment and a better quality of life for all African people.”
