Sarah was born in 1963. When exactly, she does not know. It is like this for many who were born around this time in Ghana. It is more important to know what weekday you are born on, because this influences the names you are given.
Sarah's husband died in 2004, so her two big girls Rebecca and Mary have to work. She did not have the money to pay for their higher education.
Her youngest son, Isiah, still goes to school, and Sarah is very much hoping that she can afford to send him to university when the time has come.
Sarah only went to school for 5 years, but speaks English well enough to communicate with Pernille and the other Danish employees. English is the main language in Ghana, but about 40% of our employees do not speak English.
