Adinkra Wawa Aba - the seed of the wawa tree, symbol of hardiness, toughness and preseverance This symbol is the Adinkra - Wawa Aba, The Seed of the Wawa Tree, a symbol of hardiness, toughness and preseverance. These are qualities much needed for the development of Fair Trade! The symbol also perhaps resembles a cooking pot seen from above, and as such seems entirely appropriate for a Fairtrade Cookbook. I am sure that the Ghanaians will forgive me for saying that.

Scales of Justice Lord, to those who hunger give bread; to those who have bread give them the hunger for justice.
