Photo of the week, April 25th

Much of the agriculture in West Africa lacks the benefits of mechanisation beyond fairly basic tools.  This island and shores of the Lake Volta (in the Eastern Region of Ghana) demonstrate the determination and commitment of the rural dwellers in these parts.  These lands are completely prepared by hand, and much of the area only accessible by simple canoe.  Such diligence needs to be rewarded,. with support. encouragement, education and health support as the route towards improved socio-economic standards....
