summer in Ghana

We'll be there from July 6 - August 29. We always have several projects and this summer I plan to concentrate on "Books by Girls", a creative writing program with the Aba House girls.

Our plans include donating the books to schools in Ghana so that students can read culturally relevant

 Like to dance? Think about joining us in Ghana.
