Two days after graduating Fordham University, I had the opportunity to travel to Ghana on a service learning/cultural immersion project through Fordham’s Global Outreach program. Eight other students, one chaperone, and I spent two weeks working and living in Ghana, Africa.
We spent most of our time in Worawora, (pronounced ra ra) in the Volta Region, building a classroom block for the Local Authority elementary school. While staying in Worawora we attended Sunday mass at the Worawora Evangelical Presbyterian Church, visited all the various elementary and high schools, met with the village elders, and read to children at the local library in the evenings.
The other part of our time we spent site seeing in Cape Coast and traveling throughout Ghana’s capital, Accra.
