"Ghanaian Culture and Craft"

Let's Get Familier with the World Culture!

Ms. Mamayuno, who participated to join JICA as a youth volunteer and has been supported for developing countries through a handcraft, will tell us about culture and children’s life of Ghana. She’ll also show us how to make a finger knitting that she taught to people in Ghana, and we’ll try to make a covered button using Ghanaian cloth. Let’s try out for making your own craft!

What kind of place is Ghana?

The official name is the Republic of Ghana, country of western Africa. As you known, chocolate is made from cacao beans, and they are mostly grown in Ghana. Japan imports them annually. And the capital city of Ghana, Accra, is the place where Hideo NOGUCHI who is printed on 1,000yen bills, had been researched. Ghana has been forming a close relationship with Japan.
