Despite it being almost two years it barely felt like I’d been away when I went through customs at Kotoka Airport in Accra. The same humidity, big queues for immigration and Dan being late to meet me. As always though my experiences in Ghana were huge fun and a lot of work was completed. I’ve already blogged about my impression of the voluntary sector in Ghana and below are some of my favourite photos from my trip.
Working with my fellow volunteers; Ghanaian, Togolese, Zambian, Hungarian or British was a pleasure as always. They all seemed to have a good time and they should be proud of the work that they completed.
The summer school, in conjunction with St Cecilia’s, appeared to be a successful as previous years. I look forward to reading the M&E report. Admitting twice as many students was a challenge but something that teachers and volunteers alike rose too. The enthusiasm for young people to learn when given the right encouragement never fails to inspire. The children represented their school and families extremely well.
Football coaching was fun, challenging and sweaty and it was great to be working with Dynamo FC again.
Ghana continues to shine on the tourism front and as always it was a pleasure to check out Elmina Castle, Kakum National Park and stay in the wonderful Coconut Grove Beach Resort.
The Ghanaian sunsets continue to impress as well.
And, finally, where would anyone involved in KickStart Ghana be without these two?
