Photo of the week March 27th, 2013

As the rainy season threatens to begin in earnest, the rural dwellers of Ghana watch patiently as the brown patches of bushland turn slowly to green, signalling the time to begin the planting of the rain-fed crops. Interestingly, even around the Volta Lake, where irrigation should be a matter of course, 'rain fed' dominates agricultural activity. Imagine the yields, employment, food security and socio-economic sustainability that could be achieved with appropriate irrigation, education and infrastructural support to our rural communities.
