In the summer of 2016, I travelled to Tanoboase Ghana on behalf of the Thaakat Foundation and Photographers Without Borders, on assignment to tell the story of the Konadu Basic School. This school was founded by one man named Clement Opoku Boamah, who had a dream of bringing a free school to an area where previously there was none.
During my time there, I stayed with Clement, his wife Beatrice and their 2-year-old daughter Liz. From day one I was welcomed into their family with open arms. It is the photographs that I took during the day to day life there that ended up being the most meaningful to me. Meals and chores, spending the day with Bea at her seamstress shop, traveling to visit other family members - these are the moments that helped me to understand what it means to be a part of a family in Ghana, they are the moments I will treasure the most.
