Yes, Catalyze for five is the title of the post. I am in Accra to guide physical and online players. Since I had a very-short notice, I did not get the time to give my hair the care it needed.
So I am up at 6:40 AM GMT looking for where to do a quick fix to my hair. I go to the street in Accra where there are lots of shops. And yes, a lady is opening the doors of a place where it is clearly marked “hair dressing salon”. I breath an “ouff” and I ask if I can get my hair fixed. She says yes. “I am bringing out the things”. I tell myself, “okay, that is like 2 minutes..”
Then I begin to notice “strange things”. Another lady is changing from her night gown. A gentleman comes out and stretches. A boy of about 9 years old. Then another younger boy! Then sweeping.. The whole thing takes 12 minutes.
I get into the “salon” and I realize all the family actually live there!
Now what does the salon look like? A wooden structure. 2 meteres by 3 meters, and a height not exceeding 2.5 meters!
And 5 people are sleeping and working here?
Time to catalyze!
