Kuukuwa Manful speaks to BBC World about her project to preserve Ghana's history

Kuukuwa has been leading a project to digitise important historical archives in Accra Ghana. These detail the capital's history of architecture planning, highlighting the country's colonial and post-colonial history in the process.

The archives were in danger of being lost due to their poor state. But in 2019 Kuukuwa won a grant from the British Library's Endangered Archives Programme to preserve them and make them freely available through digitisation.

The BBC story, carried by 'Focus on Africa', explained how she and her team were doing this.
