Is education your stepping stone to flourish?

In a small fishing village in Ghana, a child is being celebrated. A welcoming ceremony— "Kpodziemo" or "Outdooring"—is held only after the mother believes her child will survive. This age-old ceremony is about the dreams of all parents for all children.

Joshua Korley has been fishing his entire life. His most prized possession is his outboard motor. He nets about 50 dollars a week when the fishing is good. Joshua believes his lack of education has been a setback in his life. His daughter, 12-year-old Victoria, has a dream: to become a doctor. Public schools in Ghana are free, but overcrowded. There are 73 students in a class. Joshua wants something better for Victoria.
