Erica Baidoo

Erica’s family dynamic consists of her mother, father, and five siblings in a coastal community in Ghana’s Western Region. Her father is a fisherman, and her mother prepares the day’s catch and trades it at the market. At five years old and bursting with energy, Erica enjoys learning and attending the Pockets of Promise After-School Program, as she cannot participate in preschool. Over the past few years, the fishing communities in Ghana have seen a vast decline in the number of fish caught, making it difficult to provide for the family’s needs.
