Jamestown in Accra, Ghana is one of the poorest sections in the country. You can find out all kind of information about how poor it is and how the people live. In this blog post, however, I want to show you a different side of it.
Yes, there is poverty but the people living in this section of town are elegant, beautiful, and clean. Just because someone lives in poverty doesn’t mean they are anything less than anyone else. This post is filled with pictures and my hope is that you will see the life that’s in them and not focus on the poverty. This is part 1, I’ll post part 2 later.
One of the outfits I packed in my carry-on bag. You can get a similar skirt here.
That’s my mom talking to a resident of Jamestown. She isn’t fond of taking pictures so I figured these two pics would work for her 🙂
