Had a great stay with Idea Africa. The host and his family were very kind to me and very helpful in regards to helping me adapt to the culture. Working with the children was truly a blessing as many of them were so eager to learn and happy to someone foreign from them. Be ready to try some of the traditional foods but no worries because everything was delicious.

Be prepared to travel as you may be going throughout country to engage other towns . This trip was very inspiring to see Kofui Winner(host) building libraries across Ghana with relentless energy and exceptional leadership skills.
