Festival of Friends and becoming an elder!

On Saturday, we participated in the Festival of Friends, a celebration of Kathy and Kwasi’s 27 years of collaboration. Baobab Youth and three local groups performed and over 300 members of the community joined us.

To make the day even more amazing, Kathy (also known as Mama Yenunya Ewui Kwasiwa) was granted a special honour and was enstooled as an elder in the village of Dagbamete. It was a moving and touching ceremony and we were grateful to be a part of it.
