Life in Ghana
The hustle and bustle of the town seems an age away when you're on a beautiful Ghanaian beach at sunrise
A group of orphans play in the street
All children, especially the girls, help out with household chores
All the little ones absolutely adore having their picture taken
These lizards are everywhere and can be quite vicious when fighting over scraps of food on the floor!
Two friends mend their nets together after a hard day's fishing
Nothing makes hungry children happier than a food delivery!
A family passes by a car engine abandoned in the middle of the road. Rubbish is a problem everywhere in Ghana- and indeed in the whole of West Africa
Almost as random- a boy sits next to a TV in the courtyard of his home
A little girl smiles secretly to herself
A girl looks into the distance, deep in thought
Boatmen row past a busy market place
Volunteers leave deep footprints in the sand as they take a walk down the beach
A young girl skips energetically in her back yard
Music is everywhere in Ghana. Here there is a group of djembe percussionists performing in Cape Coast
A bird's eye view of fishermen slums is a stark reminder of the abject poverty many Ghanaians face
A boat full of fish is pulled in from the sea
Fish is a staple foodstuff in Ghana
Being right on the equator, Ghana is often hot and humid- but when it rains, it pours!!
Adults and children alike dress up in traditional clothing for celebrations...
...and faces are often decorated in paints or chalk
All women carry their babies with cloth woven around their middle like this, using their heads to carry any other object
A young boy uses a tyre as a seat to perch on
A display of rollerblading tricks from the coolest kids in town
Here some young Ghanaiains perform impressive flips on the beach
Free range it is! All farm animals roam around free- how does everyone know what belongs to who? Your guess is as good as ours!
Colourful fisherman boats line the shore
A cluster of palm trees on the beach at dusk
The sun sets on another busy day in Ghana
