Fieldwork in Ghana
Palm trees along the coast Fieldwork in Ghana As a social and cultural anthropology student, we were ‘forced’ to go abroad and do fieldwork for our Master’s research. Obviously, anthropologists like to see the world and get to know cultures so no one complained. After an intense process of choosing my destination (I considered Mexico, Venezuela, India and Ethiopia…), and more importantly, the topic of my thesis I took off for a three-month adventure in Ghana. Celebrating NYE 2015-2016 in Accra and skipping Dutch winter.Before going on fieldwork we established a research plan that consisted of a thorough literature study of our topics, a time planning and a plan of where to stay and who to meet. The thing is that I am a really bad preparer, I start packing my bags half a day before I have to leave, I never read a travel book beforehand (I like to read it afterward so I know the context) and I just book the first night. I had never been to Sub-Saharan Africa so it should have been a good idea to plan this time but I didn’t. I booked one night at ‘Pink hostel’ in Accra and would see what would cross my path that day.Marije
Two guys wandering in the West African planes of Accra Ghana and ending up on Tawalla beach for an uplifting African beach party, might not be such an incredible story.
Two guys wandering in the West African planes of Accra Ghana and ending up on Tawalla beach for an uplifting African beach party, might not be such an incredible story. It does become the case, however, when these young men are missionaries sent from a catholic diocese from overseas to spread the word of God to young African youths, living in a parish and living according to the Lord’s expectations. How it began. This incredible story originates from Gozo, Malta. Alan and I are music enthusiasts (Alan the prolific guitarass player, percussionist and vocalist, and I the DJ (The Wobis Duo) and whilst we were looking for adventure overseas, we specifically chose Africa. It was our dream to go to a place reminiscent of humanity’s roots, in which we could help others out and live out a super travelling plan. Cutting a long story short, the less expensive and safest way to go was by travelling with the Church. Even though Alan and I do not practice religion, we found no trouble joining the Holy Club in order to reach our goal. Besides, our aim was to go there and support vulnerable people that’s exactly what this religious group set out to do, and so it was indeed the perfect plan.Anna
