"I loved volunteering at the school. It was a great opportunity to meet kids and to see how education works in Ghana. I liked the fact that the program was laid-back, affordable and flexible in terms of timing, scheduling, etc. What I liked most was the teaching. The kids were so eager to learn and so excited to take part in my lessons ... I loved staying after school and learning the girls' games and showing them some that I used to play. The students were really a joy to work with and made it all very worthwhile. Being picked up at the airport and having a bottle of water purchased for me on the way to the hotel meant a lot - it's a long journey and I immediately felt like I was in good hands"

"Hi Rose!!
Thanks so much for your email. I miss Ghana and the kids!!!!! I can't believe I'm already back home and back to my crazy work schedule. My flight arrived safely, and I have just been getting back into the routine here at home. I can't thank you enough for such a wonderful experience. You, Wisdom Community School and Ghana have been such a blessing to me and I will always cherish and appreciate my time there. Thank you for making it so memorable and impacting.How are things for you? I can't believe it is April already! In a few more months you will have the rush of summertime volunteers! Keep in touch, and I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks again for everything, Sincerely"

"Hi Eric : I am doing really well. Jennifer and her family are great and I feel so looked after. The teachers at the school have all been very supportive and accommodating and I am loving introducing the kids to computer studies. I hope you are well. All the best"

"Hello, how are you? I miss you guys so much. I wake up in the middle of the night either dreaming of Ghana or waking up thinking I am still there. I would like to thank your for the wonderful experience, it was unsurpassable..."

Gayle White - (New York, USA)

"Hi Eric, just wanted to let you know that I'm back in the U.S. and way miss my volunteering experience in Ghana! I think I enjoyed every single day of my six months - and it sure didn't seem as long as six months! I'm starting up spring term classes at the University of Oregon on Monday where I am planning to get an English major so I can continue teaching...depending on God's plans, MAYBE I'll be back in Ghana someday, at least for a visit if nothing else! I would certainly recommend your volunteer program to anyone interested in going to teach in Ghana - it was an excellent experience. Thank you very much for everything you did to make things go smoothly."
