The name's Yvonne, how do you do? Just a 20-something trying to get through life. Started with the intent of artistic endeavors but got sidetracked with reblogs. Lover of creative things, equality, Doctor Who and A:TLA. She'd love to hear from you!

I don’t think I could even tell you how happy it made me to find out that Jenny and Kiki are Ghanians, you just don’t see a lot of Ghanians in western cartoons so this was really pleasing.

Love these ladies!!!

"Did you know that more than half the world’s chocolate is produced in Ghana and the Ivory Coast? Scientists predict that rising temperatures in chocolate-producing regions owing to climate change are affecting the growth of cocoa, chocolate’s main ingredient, and that chocolate production will be significantly diminished by 2030."

We often hear Africa’s success stories in the voices of men: Mandela, Nkrumah, Kenyatta, Kofi Annan, Nyerere… but Africa is actually built mainly by the hands and ingenuity of women; most of whom never receive recognition for all their toil. I dedicate these photographs to them.  Nana Kofi Acquah (@africashowboy) is a Ghanaian photographer and writer who works across the continent. www.nkaphoto.com.
Let’s start with Brigitte Perenyi, who survived child slavery as a Trokosi and today works as an activist and voice against the practice. She’s a part time model. Photo by Nana Kofi Acquah @africashowboy.

OK GUYS. In July 2010, I spent about a month in the Volta Region of Ghana. While I was there, I had the chance to spend time at New Seed International, an amazing NGO in the city of Ho. New Seed International provides care and support for people with HIV/AIDS, including a community clinic, an orphanage, and a school.

Esinam, 13, is in the care of New Seed International and she wants to go to school and become a doctor one day, but she needs facial surgery before she can do so. Both of her parents died when she was young, and her grandmother who was taking care of her has recently had a stroke.

Only $130 of her $10,000 goal has been raised in NINE months!

Every dollar helps! And even if you can’t donate, please just reblog this and keep her in your thoughts.

Esinam’s fundraising page:

oh my god, you guys, this is unbelievable. We are Tumblr and it is *not acceptable* that we can’t get the word out about this fundraiser and help this girl have the life she wants. It’s just $10,000. We pooped out that much for a new Veronica Mars movie in .000002 seconds, but it’s taken Esinam nine months to get FIVE DONATIONS. We NEED TO DO THIS. We CAN do this.

Stop what you are doing and reblog this post. Go to the donation page.  Chip in. Please. If every person following me just threw in 5 bucks each, we’d be 75% funded overnight. You guys. LET’S FUCKING DO THIS FOR HER.

Please reblog! I know some people may be reluctant because it doesn’t match their main blogs theme but there’s a little button that lets you delete posts you make. Leave it up for an hour or so so it can get around. Just get it around. There’s always someone out there willing to donate if you aren’t!

Donate of you can! If you can’t afford, please reblog!

‘The Jews Of Ghana: From The Four Corners Of The Earth’
From Toronto-based director Gabrielle Zilkha comes The Jews of Ghana: From the Four Corners of the Earth, which follows a remote Ghanaian community known as the Sefwis, who have been practicing Judaism for centuries, and who only recently (over the last 20 years) learn that they weren’t alone, with millions of people around the world also following the very same religion.
The film will document their journey of discovery, which includes their very first trip to Israel.
The filmmakers successfully raised close to $16,000 via Kickstarter last year, which went into launching production of the film, which I’m now told is ongoing currently, and will likely continue into early 2014 when the above initial trip to Israel will happen.
In the meantime, a teaser for the film was shot in February of this year, and has been released online,
