From small-scale projects to HIV/AIDS programs, NGOs (Non-Governmental Organisations) are everywhere in the developing world. However well meaning they may be, their programs epitomize low horizons and often get up the noses of everyone – from fishermen to shanty-town inhabitants – and even make them laugh out loud. Shot in Ghana, Godbless, Wofa, De Roy and local fishermen and women loathe the peanuts offered and sanctimonious lessons in good behaviour. They want jobs and material advancement, and for NGOs and aid agencies to stop treating them like children. As Godbless tells us: “Africans have big brains, big aspirations … and want to live in liberty.”
