If you have had a moment to navigate around our website, you would know that giving back to the communities we work with is at the heart of everything we do. Our journey has just began and we still have a lot of plans in the works to create change and we believe no contribution is ever too small to make a difference.
Winning this award would present an opportunity for us to raise further awareness of our cause. To win this award would mean we could present our message to more and hopefully, ultimately, result in more resources we can provide to the children in Ghana who need it. I also hope by winning this award it would inspire more businesses to think about the wider impact they could have and to really consider how they could contribute to our future generations. We believe that success isn’t measured by profit but by how much of a contribution we can make.
We appreciate your continuing support and wish us luck!

Following the same ethical principles of fair trade and sustainable fashion, Created by Culture, our sister company, is proud to showcase the crafts and traditions that have been part of Ghanaian culture for centuries. And in doing so, are able to support and sustain a small team of local Ghanaian artisans who are passionate about sharing their craft and culture with the world. So while we will continue to focus on growing our home decor range here at Adinkra Designs, we will also be working closely with Created by Culture to bring you the best in sustainable fashion, showcasing the amazing work of talented Ghanaian artisans. We are very excited by our new partnership and cannot wait to bring you the amazing designs in the pipeline!
Life in Ghana is very different to Australia and as can be expected, it's been quite an adjustment for the whole family. It's actually been pretty crazy when we look back over the past months and what we have achieved. From finding a new home, dealing with scrupulous landlords, selecting a school for the kids that would be the right fit, feeling like a L plate driver learning to drive for the first time on these crazy lawless roads and learning to live with inefficient services we consider basic like garbage collection, power and water services - but it's not all been stress and chaos, we've already made great friendships, amazing new connections and have been enjoying quality time with family, learning to slow down and take the time to appreciate the small things...
We finally made it to Ghana after an epic 27 hour flight! The kids were (surprisingly) great on the flight. They just loved the unrestricted movie time and my lil bub was happy to snuggle into Mama for the most part. It's been a funny experience leading up to this point with lots of mixed reactions from family, friends and random strangers who hear about our big move to Ghana. It's sad that most commonly we get asked if it is safe - like I'd be taking my kids to a country that isn't safe?! - as strange as the question is, its not overly surprising given how negative Africa is portrayed in our media. Our first week in Ghana has been anything but negative <3
