Start Date  June 4, 2015 - July 2, 2015

After 14 years since the last time I had returned back to the Republic of Ghana, I have received a tremendous opportunity to not only return home, but to also make a difference in the country that I was born in. This past June, I volunteered with a nonprofit organization called Frontier on the Ghana Teaching project.

Working with a school in Ghana,  I got an opportunity to immerse myself in the community and help teach the students English. The command of the English language is not only a great way to meet people, but it is a mighty key that opens many doors for people in Ghana. Despite English being the national language in Ghana, many children grow up speaking their tribal dialects and languages.  For a lot of children, in order to get out the cycles of poverty that they may be in or may eventually find themselves in, they need to have a good command of the English language. Over time, English has evolved into the business language in Ghana. By learning the English language, these students are able to access better jobs and education.
