    Almost one week down and three weeks to go! So this week was all about villages, schools and canopy walking. On Monday, I met with my organization HEPENS and the owners there. We talked about what were some things that I could do or bring to the organization. Tuesday was my first day to actually work, sort of. We headed to a village that was about 40 minutes from where I'm staying Abura. …

    I realized that I had totally forgotten to talk about the service project I did with ProWorld last Friday! We went to a pueblo (I forget the name) and helped a small elementary school by building tables from scratch! It was neat because all the mothers came to help us girls build, and it was a very empowering sight because this kind of work is usually reserved for men. This …

    I'm so ready to go back to school. Dr. Andrew said I can probably go back to school tomorrow :) Yesterday I spent the majority of the day sleeping and resting. I took all my medications yesterday morning and starting feeling nauseous. I asked the doctor if that was normal and he told me to stop taking my medication for the laryngitis and only take my malaria medication since that's the …

    First posting since being in AFRICA!!! Where do I start?! Well lets see, the flight over was very easy! I ended up changing my seat because I was originally set to sit between two people in the middle section. Couldn’t see myself doing that for 11 hours!!! The plane was filled with both obrunis (foreigner in fante) and Ghanians. I was able to sit next to an elderly Ghanian woman …

    Not the greatest few days I've had in Ghana but I'm alive and doing ok :) Saturday I was feeling pretty exhausted when I blogged. I slept the majority of the day. I also had a pretty bad sore throat and really bad body aches so I took some pain medication and a muscle relaxer and started feeling a little bit better. Some of the new volunteers arrived and wanted to …

We went to parks, and checked out little markets where they sell really inexpensive trinkets and such, ran some errands in …

    Yesterday was a fun day at school...well I guess we weren't technically at school. Geoff and I received our budget for the project money for Aboom. We decided to spend our money on materials for the children to make more bags to sell to raise money for the school. We bought 60 yards of fabric. We had to get 2 yards per pattern so we had a lot of fun …

    Migraine, migraine...please go away! I do not have enough time left here to waste any days being sick!!Yesterday was another great day! On Wednesdays, the students have worship in the morning.
