Jerry is the first of three children and, therefore, has to support his single mother to care for him and his siblings.

No vacation classes for Jerry

He added that when school is on vacation, instead of joining his colleagues for vacation classes, he studies on his own and sells the bofrot so there can be money at home.

“I sell bofrot to support my parent to look after me. Whenever we go on vacation, I don’t go to classes. I go and sell bofrot to support my parents. So I’m proud of selling bofrot. I encourage my colleagues who are also in this situation to do something to help their parents and look after their parents.”

Bofrot is a Ghanaian breakfast, snack, and dessert. It is essentially a fried yeasted wet dough that forms balls of golden, crispy, and fluffy snacks when fried in hot oil.
