CARRIER GIRLS IN TOGO In Lomé, Togo, unlike other African cities, carrying goods to the market is a woman’s job instead of a man’s. The carrier girls from Lomé all belong to the same ethnic group and come from villages along the Togo/Ghana border. They work hard, all day long, except Sundays, and sometimes are exploited by merchants or clients because of their lack of education. Their mission: to make enough money to go back to their villages and settle there as a dressmakers or hairdressers. Despite the fact that life is hard, these girls have a strong sense of community spirit. In their own words: “We are all sisters from the same family.”
