The Women of Kperisi, Ghana

Bolga Baskets Ghana Ghanian Women Kperisi Product Posts Shea Butter Women of Kperisi

I just read my first blog post. Maybe I came out of it with my foot in my mouth? Or close? So much of what Baraka Supplies does and is about has to do with women and families and communities. And yet when I look at my first blog post, the pictures were about me and men! Oops!

This time I’ll share a bit about the community and the women of Kperisi Ghana.


Kperisi is a village just outside of Wa in northern Ghana. Kperisi, along with Tapko, are the two main communities and women’s groups that we work with for Shea Butter.

Feel free to see a map of Kperisi Ghana so you get a better idea of its location.

Let’s start with a better photo of the Kperisi Na’s Palace and people of the community (Na means Chief in many northern Ghana languages). A picture that I’m not in!
The photo shows some of the Women’s group with the Chief, other elders and leaders and, of course, the children.
This was taken shortly after a project to restore the Chief’s Palace, a project that Baraka Supplies was pleased to support both financially and in-kind.

Fortunately I have some great help and support (isn’t it wonderful how we can be fortunate enough to attract great people and energy sometimes!).
