The northern part of Ghana is one of the most drought affected areas. Most times rains delay and farmers have no alternative than pray and wait. Farming is one of the major professions in the Northern Region.
But its usually not only the farmers who eagerly awaits the rains, the children do too, tired of playing in the dry wind and tired of fighting the hamatan which usually leaves traces of dry skin, cracked lips and feet.....
Children, wait on the rains patiently so they can play in the mud and mould clay toys.
Little man here Nsobilla can't wait to get soaked.

A day in my village

I met this two hardworking girls when I visited my grandmother's village.
After school they are home helping in the kitchen. ..and weekends they just do extra work (its not child abuse anyway).
I hope soon I can make life better for the children of my village. ...

Northern Heritage

Basket weaving is one of the unique trades of the people of the Upper East Region of Ghana, Bolgatanga.
Apart from  its recognition for the use of leather in producing bags, shoes and sandals, basket making has travelled wide and far.
Women and men engage in this beautiful art to make a living,  while away time and show off their art skills by designing unique and beautiful patterns on every basket they make.
The people of Bolgatanga are also known for the "smock" attair they weave.
Tuozafi* (T.Z) and Bito* soup is the popular food prepared and eaten in Bolgatanga.
To be continued. .........

Heart to Hut Foundation is a charitable foundation setup by the “heart – people” (kind) to help the “hut – people” (needy) in the society.
The Ghanaian interpretation of a kind and caring person mostly goes with the general term “person with a heart”.
People living in “huts” are mostly found in the rural areas and are considered poor- and needy (this however is not false).
That is what the Heart to Hut foundation is here for - the poor and needy (less fortunate)
Heart to Hut came into existence since 5th April 2014. The groups objective is to annually visit deprived communities and engage them in life changing activities.
Membership is open to all like minded persons who want to make impact in societies. YOU are welcome

The essence of the group is to assist the needy in society to realize their dreams for progressive development and to improve their living standards.
In furtherance of this the Heart to Hut’s major components include;

This aspect is basically for the children. It includes, short teachings, donations of books, reading competitions with awards to be won.
It comprises health talks on hygiene, sanitation, family planning...

Our next project however takes place July this year and we are in the "collecting process". Used but presentable clothes, books, shoes, etc are welcome.

We pray that God in His own way takes the mantle, and we follow

Solomon Adufah

Solomon is a man whose works I hav followed for a while, he is a great artist and a lover of colours.
Every painting  of his is a visible reflection of his love for art and the people he paints.
He inspires me because he shares a passion, the act of reaching out to society and putting smiles on the faces of the less privileged.
However I noticed he keeps drawing everyone else but himself,  so I decided to return the love today by trying to paint him.
I know am not as good an artist as he is yet but am glad to have tried this.
He looks much better than on this paper though..
