I have just booked my trip with ProjectsAbroadUK to Ghana, to embark on a project in physiotherapy. I am really looking forward to it! and wondered if anybody else here would be going to do a physiotherapy project and/or going to Ghana in July 2017? also, if anybody has already been on a project in Ghana- are you able to give any advice? places I must visit whilst there? What to expect? etc? any advice would be great.
If you're going around the same time as me, please do get in touch! I will be doing some independent travel after my project and wouldn't mind buddying up with somebody.
I'll be leaving for Ghana, Africa in a few months. I'm not sure what to feel: nervous, scared, excited, estatic..
One day, I just felt beyond myself. I felt as if I needed to do something that will push me out of my comfort zone, so I started Googling stuff, anything and everything. Then I found Projects Abroad. At first, I gave doubt, I thought "This is crazy, how will I ever be able to do this?" but after a lot of researching and talking to a former volunteer, I decided to push forward. I said to myself: "there is nothing better than helping people and traveling at the same time."
This is my first time traveling alone, first time traveling outside of the US, first time stepping out of my comfort zone. I've always pictured myself doing this and I cannot believe that it is actually becoming reality.
I'm not sure what to expect but I am so excited to immerse myself into a whole different culture than to what I am used to here in the states and at the same time give medical help to people in need.
So, I have been accepted by Projects Abroad to travel to Ghana and help children and youth in need. I should be excited but I am nervous becuase now it is all becoming real. I have to raise around $8000 to make this trip possible. This trip is more than just completing my intership hours for school, this trip is the beginning of dreams and hopes becoming reality. My hopes and dreams are to help and care for children and youth. I'm hoping that money will not hinder me from doing good. Im going to work as hard as a I can to make this possible and trust that God will see me through this trip.
So, this the beginning; should be excited but nervous. Hoping and praying that I will be able to share God's love with my people in Ghana.
