Each new year gives us countless reasons to be thankful, and December is a tentative reminder of the value and reasons we began this journey together on the edge of the world. Just a few days ago we celebrated a Christmas surprise with the charges of the Start From Ghana Foundation. The temperature was truly tropical, due to the harmattan or dry season that is about to arrive. There was a festive meal as befits a Christmas egg, chicken and jollof, or Ghanaian specialties. There was Mary and Joseph with their newborn child, the most important guests of the event. The role of these important characters was played by kids from the Janusz Korczak Kindergarten, in beautiful words and gestures telling us about the essence of this Christmas.
