A small personal story....
That's me. The tall one in the middle. My stepmom on the left, and my niece on the right. I am half Dutch and half Ghanian. I was born and raised in the Netherlands, finished University in Amsterdam and currently working for ING Bank. My father and my stepmom recently started this elementary school in Accra, Ghana. Although I am living in the Netherlands, I have always been connected to Ghana due to family visits and own interest of the Ghanian people and culture. I traveled to many places in the world, but when in Ghana, oddly enough it feels like being home. When the opportunity raised to help my father setting up this school and the volunteer project I took it with both hands. I think that volunteering at our school is something special. There is no large organisation involved, no large fees, no tourism attractions, the opportunity to really experience Ghana in its purest form and contribute to a better life of the children.
See you there!
