Ghana Community Development

Accra, Kumasi, & Cape Coast, GHANA

May Mini-Mester 2014 (May 18-June 1)

Check out our table @ Go Global Interest Meeting: Oct 7, 5:30-7:30pm, Bobo Spiritual Life Center

Our primary focus is working with children. We will partner with Shoot 4 Life Ministries to go into both private & public Ghanian schools and teach various classes (ex. computer, English, etc.) and play basketball. This is a wonderful time to learn the stories of children, to share a bit of your story, and share the love of God!

We might also go to All Nations Charity Home where we can read with the children, play lots of games, especially soccer, and do a miniature "VBS." We also try to do some special things like make popcorn and watch a movie and cook a special meal.

There is also an informal educational component to this trip. We will do things like visit a cultural market, visit a tribal palace museum, and tour a slave castle museum.

We will also get to try lots of exciting and unique foods, experience local culture, and attend a local church service.

This trip is open to all majors, both undergraduate, graduate, or Truett Seminary students. No teaching or athletic experience is required but it is helpful. We would love a balance of both guys and girls to participate on this trip.
