Ghana's official currency is the Cedi. The colorful one-, ten-, twenty-, and fifty-cedi bills all picture the same group known as the “Big Six.” These are six leaders instrumental in Ghana's fight for independence. Ghanaians consider them their founding fathers. While exchange rates fluctuate frequently the current rate converts $10 US dollars to $57 Ghanaian cedis.

Ghana has a rich tradition of handicrafts with the weaving of kente cloth and the dyeing of batik fabrics. Batik uses wax and wooden stamps to create a resist design. The fabric is then dyed and dipped in hot water to remove the wax leaving a beautiful pattern behind. Batik fabric is designed and produced at the Care Center to be used for school uniforms, other clothing, and gifts.

With homes having open windows to let in the breeze, sweeping is a big part of keeping a living space clean and tidy. In Ghana, traditional brooms are made by first stripping a large palm frond of its leaves. The leaves are then stripped leaving only the large central rib of each leaf. These ribs are dried and bundled to be used as brooms.

The Ghanaian pledge of allegiance is said as students assemble each morning before school begins.

I promise on my honour
to be faithful and loyal to
Ghana, my motherland.
I pledge myself to the service of Ghana
with all my strength and with all my heart.
I promise to hold in high esteem
our heritage, won for us through the blood and toil of our fathers;
and I pledge myself in all things to uphold and defend the good name of Ghana.
So help me God.

In Ghana and many African countries, from a young age children carry items on their heads. Carrying items this way permits proper spinal alignment and allows the individual to carry a much heavier load with less burden on the body. You will often find children around the Care Center using this method to transport water for washing or food that is harvested from the fields.
