Sekondi / Ghana
Smiling faces… friendly people…
Ghana is one of the most welcoming places in central Africa I had the chance to visit.
Ghana was also the hub for slavery where the Portuguese were first to arrive in 1471.
My Ghanean friend Francis Jenal, allowed me to cover a full report on coffee production from harvesting
to packaging. Farmers on the spot were kind enough to explain to me the complete and complex process.
Thanks to him I was also able to go places not normally accessible to a westerner like Francis' home village of Sekondi, in the Asamansudo region.
Many pictures reflect the emotion when these villagers came across him again.
This was a great opportunity to also flag the farmers' need for fair trade.
The hard work done by all them is tremendous and is all too often overlooked.
