Sekondi / Ghana

 

LOG:

 

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.
