The photo shows Paul becoming Chief of Awanya Village. Awanya invited him to take this on in thanks for his effort in collecting (via Crowdfunder) enough money to give every household its own latrine.
Paul was born in Ghana, and given the Ghanaian name of Kwasi Mensah at birth. In Awanya, he took the vacant stool formerly held by Kwadwo Mensah – so it was clear to the village that he was an entirely suitable person and probably a reincarnation of the original stoolholder. They put on a wonderful durbar (a meeting with dancing) in his honour.
