The name “Tro Tro” is said to come from the Gà word “tro” meaning “pesewa” (the smallest unit of Ghanaian currency), because of the Tro Tro’s status as the cheapest means of transportation.

If you missed March’s Tro Tro Vibes last week don’t worry! The next one is on 8 September, World Literacy Day, and promises to be even bigger and better than the activities I tweeted and instagramed last week.
Check out my social media platforms for snippets of the day we had and expect way more than that to come this September!
