Young girls dress in nubility attire for the annual Children's Day sponsored by local schools. They wear snail shell necklaces and have applied white paint to their face, chest and midriff. This attire is associated with the nubility ceremonies of groups from southern Ghana and is adopted here as a generic form of ritual costume.
