    Hayford Bempong and David Celestin are electricians at Accra Polytechnic, who I wrote about last as they had fabricated an FM radio station from scratch and used it at Maker Faire Africa. Hayford and David seemed like just the type to take a look at the bag and really determine its use. Being college-level students, they have a different type of lifestyle than many, and that might mean more ideas and thoughts about what the FLAP bag could be used for. True to form, they were not nearly as excited about the quality of the stitching, or the textiles used, but very interested in the internal electrical components. They were excited about the idea of a bag with an in-built solar panel, and were curious as to wattage and the ability use step-ups and inverters to make it even more useful.

                  • Kayaye - We carry more than just a load

                    Kayaye – we carry more than just a load, is edited like a piece of music in rhythms. With visual effects and aestetic elements the viewer is drawn into the film. Sometimes the rhythm stops and suddenly change direction. The film is a sensory documentary which allow for an unconventional depiction of "Kayaye". "Kayaye" refers to mainly women from Northern Ghana, who travel south and often end up in the capital Accra, where they work as day laborers carrying things for people, bearing almost anything. Kayaye is a phenomenon arising from poverty, unemployment and lack of education and possibilities, especially for women from northern Ghana. But to work as a Kayaye can also sometimes be a way for young women with a strong will to stand on their own feet and earn money for themselves and their families. They detach themselves from their families’ powerful and sometimes constricting obligations, and thus have the opportunity to act on their own and become more independent. While these young people are not completely separated from their families, by being far from home they gain distance from the challenges and authoritarian power of the elders, which can create pressures in everyday life. This is seen for example in the case of young girls and women who do not want to marry a man chosen by the family, or those who wish to leave their husbands and meet freely with other youngsters of their own age. The women live risky lives in the capital Accra by working very hard and sleeping in the streets and they all dream of a way out. The film aims to show social problems through a different lens the language is poetic, the images are aesthetic and the women are powerful.
