Many homes on the coast of Ghana’s Volta region have been destroyed by tidal waves in the last week. This elementary school used to be miles away from the shore some years ago but it is now lost to the sea.
There were 54 children in the school but right now they don’t have classes. Their education hangs in the balance.
Sea erosion is wreaking havoc on villages along West Africa’s shore lines, threatening whole communities.
People in the community told BBC if nothing is done their towns will be completely wiped off the map pretty soon.
