We believe these pictures are creations of beauty and significance, and we can think of many a big wall in homes, offices and hotels where a luminous Ghanaian landscape would attract great interest.


Mel has exhibited in London before but has saved up her Ghana pictures for this show; and this is Christopher’s first London exhibition, which we think will put him excitingly on the international scene.


Both artists have most generously offered to give 50% of all profits to Friends of Tafo, as a final salute to the development of the impoverished rural community of Kwahu Tafo,
which has been its inspiring focus for thirteen years.

Humphrey and all at Friends of Tafo



Friends of Tafo is a UK registered charity that aims to empower as well as help the people of Kwahu-Tafo, an impoverished rural town in Ghana, via responsible giving that generates a capacity for self-development in education, health and infrastructure, and employment.
We work in close partnership with local individuals and organisations to ensure that the projects chosen and the resources allocated reflect local needs and priorities. In the interests of efficiency and greater long term possibilities we are always on the look out for opportunities for partnership with other organisations.

Friends of Tafo operates alongside its sister organisation, the Kwahu-Tafo Progress Council (KTPC), based in Ghana, which initiates, prioritises and administers projects within the town.

Friends of Tafo was founded in 2001 by TV Producer Humphrey Barclay after his installation as Nkosuohene (Development Chief) in the ancestral home town of his friend the late actor Gyearbuor Asante, who played 'Matthew' in the TV show Desmond's.
