The Nana Project

I had the pleasure of interviewing the Founder and Executive Director of The Nana Project, Kirstie Kwarteng. Please click here or play the video below to watch my interview with her.

Kirstie is very passionate about preserving Ghana’s rich history through the storytelling of Ghanaian elders. During my interview with her, she said the following:

It’s important for us to capture the memories and history of this generation while we still have this generation here to tell it to us. Because if we as Ghanaians don’t do it, whose going to do it for us? It’s our history.

    I love this project idea and I am excited that Kristie has pursued this! I am very encouraged by her passion. Earlier this year, my father was dealing with serious health issues and it prompted my siblings and I to ensure we had a record of him for future generations. We set up a camera and took turns interviewing my dad just to hear his life story. We had a good time of laughter and at times, tears. But now, we have his story forever and this is precious to us.

    Thanks for sharing Amma, please keep up the good work!

      Hey Ama! Thank you so much for commenting and sharing. I think what you and your siblings did with your father is so sweet and genius! God-willingly I can do that with my father the next time I visit Ghana. It’s important we get all that we can from our parents and document it. Thanks for reading and thank you for the encouragement 🙂
