Hey Google, tell me a story

Our friend Mark brought a ‘Google Home’ to Ghana last month. It’s the size of a doughnut, and tries to answer questions by searching for information on the web.

In the little village of Gyetiase, it was a wow – everyone wanted to have a go. Mark mounted it in a box on the back of a church, and day and night we could hear voices asking questions – for the name of the President of Ghana, or who Michael Essien was, or what was the capital of Togo, or just to be told a story.

Pay day for farmers

Last month in Ashanti, we talked to the farmers of Mpantuase Village about the agricultural training and support they were getting. They seemed very well versed, and all knew to watch out for the dreaded army worm, which can destroy crops at the snap of a finger.

Here’s a picture of our meeting, and a couple more of Mavis paying them their loans. They will use the money to buy tools and tubers, seeds, wellington boots and agro-chemicals, and then repay it after the harvest.
