"I really enjoyed the time there"

Ghana - 8 weeks

Medical: Hospital work and Teaching

In my first month I worked in Agbozume orphanage and the school in Agbozume. We helped the children in the morning to bath and dress up for school. I did not teach but I helped with research ( most needy children in the area – micro financing) and I helped the children doing their homework and played with them. I really enjoyed the time there living with FIVE other volunteers behind the school/orphanage in a compound with other Ghanaian families. To work and eat we came to the school. I really like to be with children and the people.

Community

I have to say that I like more living in Agbozume with the other volunteers and the kids. I felt more comfortable in the area because everybody knew that we were working at the orphanage and helped us whenever they could. People in Aflao are more annoying. Agbozume is quieter and the people were just nice to you.
