If only the men worked half as hard

Ghanaian men work hard too. I'm one of them and I know but... the energy and commitment our women display is just something else.

I just finished traveling through parts of the country, photographing beneficiaries of IFAD projects... their stories are awe-inspiring. I wish them all the best... as they strive to better their world.

Back at home in Accra, these city girls are working hard in their own way... and they deserve an applause too.

Recently I was talking to my Ghanaian man and his mates were in the background all laughing and cutting up as they had just finished a workshop. I had just finished some 12 hours on the job,on my feet without a break and told him, "I work harder than all you together." He laughed and said, "you right, you right." Can you guess his profession or should I give you a hint? Renee

@Tetekai, do you remember the gentleman who walked up to you at the Black's Secret make up bar and shook your hands? You told him his face looked familiar but couldn't remember where you knew him from. He said: "Don't worry. As long as I look familiar, that is enough" :)

Tetekai said...
