"The experience with the kids was the best part! Some of them are eager to learn, it is beautiful and makes me want to be the best teacher they’ve ever had! I don’t know if it is like that in every African country (it certainly is not like that in Portugal, where I live in), but the kids in the orphanage made me feel like I was meant to be a kid again and do all the crazy and innocent things that we kids do! I was in such a peaceful state of mind and having so much fun at the same time! I absolutely loved it! Besides, the relationships created with the staff and the kids are so meaningful that it became difficult for me to imagine my life going on without them around.
I hold Ghana very dearly in my heart, I don’t think I could have felt more like home being alone in a completely different reality from the one I’ve always lived in! I am definitely coming back." – Beatriz Barbosa from Portugal

"Ghana is a rich and colourful place, humming with culture and rhythm. If you are in search of an authentic experience, Ghana would be an excellent choice. Experience the Ghanaian society and everyday life whilst making a difference and working along with the local people on their terms.
On many aspects Ghana has been through a lot of development and is a country in progress. On other aspects; the education system, the division of power and the structure of the society – it is a country with some major problems that needs a lot of work and focus. You will have the challenge of a lifetime whilst everyday is a life changing experience that will stay with you forever. Definitely recommendable!" - Mathilde Steiness from Denmark
