Ghana is a former British colony so the official language of education is still English. Ghana is also located on the Greenwich meridian and so is in the same time zone as we are. Sekondi-Takoradi is a naval port and container port, just like Plymouth. It has a similar population size at about , and it takes about 4 to 5 hours to reach from the capital city, Accra. We therefore find many similarities as well as differences. Ahantaman Senior High was about the same size as PHSG and had a majority of girl students although there were some boys when we first linked up with them. It is now an all-girls school with over 2, students and the current Head, Mrs Ocloo, says that there is a waiting list, partly down to the success of our partnership as it has raised aspirations. It is a boarding school but there are also day students.

"For life, not school, we learn"
Her schoolgirls belch their manipulations onto the stage like a kind of noxious gas, as they primp before the mirror of their own, sometimes literally disfiguring, vanity. The year: Imagine the days and the nights in that place—hot and dry, then cool and dry. Although Paulina the very powerful MaameYaa Boafo is petite, she is the dominant figure here, and the first words out of her mouth are mocking ones, directed at a heavier girl, Nana Abena Mensah-Bonsu, terrific in the role , whom Paulina castigates for her eating habits. What must it be like to be Paulina, with her constant irritation and discontent—signs of a profound insecurity that she can barely keep in check? Part of what fills Paulina up, at least temporarily, the way porridge fills Nana, is the attention of an audience. Even so—if he exists at all—he will come around for sure once Paulina is selected by a recruiter to compete in the Miss Ghana contest.

Sex work in Ghana, in particular Accra, is one of those open secrets. While the practice is frowned upon, if you ask almost anyone on the streets where you can find areas notorious for Ashawos, people could point you in the right direction. In spite of collective knowledge on the whereabouts of sex workers in Accra, it dawned on me that, growing up in the city, I knew very little about these women. I had never thought much about them outside the stereotypes and public images they are often assigned. The public perception of these women has never made room for the traumatising or unfortunate circumstances or even deliberate choices that may have led them to sex work in the first place. The all-too-familiar condemnation simply brands them in such a way that expects them to find better, more respectful jobs, in an economy that has a 6. The public disapproval of these women often touts sex work as something they want to engage in, focusing on the intention behind a job they willingly choose after all, they are supposed to be bad girls. After interviewing 15 sex workers in Accra, my research revealed that sex work for these women is often a stepping stone, a means to a greater end and not as far removed from other work as often thought. Some of these women expressed discontent with their work, but they were also resigned to their situation in which they lacked opportunities for other employment. With dreams of becoming beauticians, hairdressers and seamstresses, the respondents set their sights on work other than sex work, contrary to the typical belief of many Ghanaians me included previously.
