How nice! Am totally excited about it. You can tell it comes from your heart.


Get to know the locals and Ghanaian customs before traveling!

“Children who ask are getting passed over.”

I can still hear my mother saying it…..
And then I came to Ghana for the first time in 2001. My hostess always asked for bread and kids would say “Give me pen/balloon/food/money.

Wow, how rude I thought those kids were and pfff why did I always have to bring a loaf of bread?

Until I understood a long time later that when the children here don’t ask, they are actually passed over. On top of that, in the local language there is not really a phrase like Can I have and in Ghana it is absolutely not rude to ask.

And by now, I also ask my colleague for a loaf of bread when she travels, because that is a custom here:)
