Kids play in boats in Jamestown Fishing Village in Accra, Ghana
Kids play in boats in Jamestown Fishing Village in Accra, Ghana on October 11, 2015.
Three young boys play among the artisanal boats in Jamestown fishing village. Boys in Jamestown begin fishing as young as 9 years old. The fishermen typically bring their catches back to the women in the community, who lay the fish out in courtyards to dry. Jamestown—the center of Ga culture in Ghana—is a slum, but its citizens are proud and hard working. Problems related to housing, food, and education loom large.
