We should be well into the dry season in Ashanti, but it’s been raining solidly for several months. Climate change means that it’s very hard to predict the seasons, but at last it looks as if the weather’s changing and we can start outdoor work again. The photos are of Esereso community, when Nicholas (left, in pale blue) is telling them that we’re going to build a village school to replace the one they built themselves, which blew away in a storm.
Esereso is a settler community. The people came south when it became impossible to sustain life around the Sahara. Climate change has already turned their lives upside down, so we’re doing our best to put it right way up again.
