3 November-3 December 2010. This photographic exhibition, organized by the British Council in Accra in collaboration with non-governmental organization, Southern Sector Youth and Women's Empowerment Network (SOSYWEN), illustrates the living conditions of women, accused of being witches, in the three camps at Gnani, Kukuo and Gambaga in the northern regions of Yendi, Nanumba North and East Mamprusi. It focuses on the environment in which these women live with their children, their housing and health conditions as well as their serious nutrition and isolation problems. The aim of the event is to draw the attention to these ancient, cruel cultural practices against so-called witches. The exhibition is part of a wider project, the so-called witches camp integration project. Similar exhibitions are planned for those districts which host these camps.
