John B.

John lives within the seafaring community in Ghana’s Western Region with his parents and five siblings. He is in class 3 and is advancing his education level with the Pockets of Promise after-school program. Over the past few years, life has become more complex than ever before, relying almost entirely on the catch of the day. A decrease in daily hauls from the ocean has had a detrimental impact on John’s family income and nutritional needs.
