Volunteering in Ghana was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had!

Volunteering in Ghana was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had! The people are so friendly and have the biggest smiles. While I was shaken by some of the things I saw, it was impossible not to feel wonderful when surrounded by such cheerful and friendly people. The orphanage especially was heartwarming. I found it very hard to really understand the lives of the kids there. The bad seemed covered up or trumped by the good – very opposite to most, if not all, western cultures. As a picky eater I was extremely worried about the food in Ghana, but I ate more than I do at home! It was all delicious. Overall I had an incredible experience in Ghana, and couldn’t help shedding a few tears when I left!
