Tafi Atome Village

What do you notice in these pictures?

What are these women doing?

How are natural materials being

used in these two scenes?

Tafi Atome

My first stay in Tafi Atome took place in 2000. I went back in 2004.

In those four years the villagers had made noticeable progress.

*The number of “bore” wells rose from 2 to 3. *Tafi now has a junior secondary school in

addition to their elementary school.

*They have developed cottage industries,

including corn grinding and Kente weaving.

Tafi Atome now has electricity. Is this an advantage or disadvantage for village life?

Ghana has many proverbs.

Hate has no medicine.

Do not call the

forest that

shelters you

a jungle.

begins in the homes

of its people.

One falsehood spoils a thousand truths.
