Hi Friends!

I really want to volunteer teach in Ghana this summer!  I have been accepted into a volunteer program to teach primary school English for the month of June.  The cost I am looking for covers my airfare ($1400) and my room and board when I am there ($750). The extra is for if the flight cost goes up and visa costs, etc. 

The organization is called Cheerful Hearts Foundation. Here's a link to the program.

The students there do not have access to high quality teachers, resources, or curriculum.  I feel like with my 10 years of teaching/ administration experience, I can really make a difference!  I would also love to learn from this experience and bring more of the outside world back to my students in Colorado.  

I have always been drawn to this part of Africa since so many in the area speak French (although Ghana's primary language is English- many speak tribal languages).  I plan to use my own money to travel on the weekends to experience more of Africa too :)
