- KurzbeschreibungThis book explores the Trokosi cultural practice in<br>south-eastern Ghana and its consequence on girls'<br>education from the perspectives of inclusion and<br>exclusion. The Trokosi is a traditional cultural<br>practice in which a virgin girl is sacrificed to a<br>shrine to atone for an offence committed by a family<br>or a relative; meaning the girl is not the offender.<br>The minority of the Trokosi girls who are redeemed<br>from the shrine after payment of ransom by their<br>parents are partially included in modern education.<br>As a traditional system, the Trokosi is immersed in fear.<br>The book also highlights the Trokosi system based on<br>strong traditional belief and due to its efficacy the<br>proponents of the system uphold it and socialize the<br>Trokosi girls into accepting it; thereby accepting<br>their destiny. The traditionalists believe any move<br>to abolish the system implies destroying their<br>customs. The Ghana government, representing modernity<br>is based on scientific principle of rationality,<br>banned the practice by law but finds it difficult to<br>implement the law. Thus both the Trokosi girls and<br>the government are caught in between tradition and<br>modernity as regards inclusion and exclusion in<br>modern education. This implies that as long as the<br>government remains in dilemma the Trokosi girls would<br>be excluded from modern education or few would be<br>partially included.
