After 3 months working alongside TradeAID our placement is coming to an end this week. To celebrate our achievements we were all invited to a farewell meal with all of the TradeAID team. We had a lovely time and we wore our finest Ghanaian fabrics and smocks. Sean was presented with a lovely handcrafted flared smock for his hard work at TradeAID and it was made by some of the crafts people in the smock market.
During our time in Bolga we have bought many Ghanaian clothes varying from shirts, trousers and smocks to dresses and tunics. Bolgatanga is known as the crafts centre of the Upper East region, with a large central market and crafts village. The crafts village is a fantastic experience where we have all bought real Ghanaian products. Here are a few snaps of our outfits.
