 In the month of May we had visa delays, missed flights, etc. and conducted 5 orientations the trend continued in June and we are receiving our 3rd off schedule participant this weekend. 

June is a core month marking our summer busy season.  Just so you know PW typically has two peak seasons winter and summer for about 1-3months. While this sounds like a short time frame, imagine the rest of the year facilitating programs for 2-6 participants in any month and ballooning to 25-100 participants in any month. Whoa, I’m exhausted just writing about it.  With increased numbers come increased opportunities for, well, things to go wrong. Or shall I say not quite as planned.  Our model is that everyone arrives the first weekend of the month for orientation.  In the month of May we had visa delays, missed flights, etc. and conducted 5 orientations the trend continued in June and we are receiving our 3rd off schedule participant this weekend. I am so excited that the latest one is arriving. She had visa complications and two cancelled flights. We already had our staff scheduled for excursions during her arrival time and had to produce some team Ghana magic. But we’ve made it work and our last june arrival will make it just in time to join the rest of the group on this Saturday's excursion! It's a good one too. Assin Manso slave river and the Cape Coast Castle. Check these places out on YouTube if you're not familiar. Well gotta go. The rain just started pouring a sign that the internet gods will soon leave us. Cheers!
