Traveling to Ghana is always an exciting time for me; not so much as a Principal of the company, but more like an individual returning to a homeland. It is an opportunity to re-connect with my large network of the artisans and find new talent; but it goes beyond business to meeting their families, listening to them and sharing the joys and milestones in their lives.
The trip is also about searching for rare hand-carved treasures for market. Unique pieces and the stories behind them. The trip will take me through many corners of the country; remote villages that represent the heart of the carving industry to bring you stories about their hopes and aspirations. You will see pictures and videos that give you insightful information about the history, culture, and lifestyle of the people of Ghana.
