Girl Child Education in Ghana
Matilda selling avocados in a market in the Upper West region of Ghana on 28 May 2014. According to Matilda, she sells GHS 30 - 40 (£5.90 - 7.90) of merchandise per day for a woman who lives near the market, for which she is paid GHS 1 (£0.20). She lives with her older brother, but largely fends for herself as he works away. She said she attended school until her mother’s death; her father lives in Kumasi, Ghana’s second-largest city, but she has no relationship with him and receives no support.
