(3) Because Travel is About Experiencing New Things
Anyone can travel or intern in Paris or Rome. But do you have what it takes to live in rural northern Ghana? Yes, mosquito nets are involved. And yes, sometimes there's no running water and electricity. But take it from someone who knows: Ghana “changed my perspective on the cosy life we live in Europe” (Michael B., 2004).
All too often, we see Africa as a country, rather than a massive continent full of diversity and many, many cultures. Truly understanding and learning about a culture is more than just a Wikipedia article and a Google search.
By living in Ghana, you’ll be immersed in a place full of history and traditions. With The Ghana Project, you can learn about the customs and everyday life of Ghanaians. By forming relationships with students and members of the community, you’ll be taught by the most qualified teachers.
(5) Because Bilbo Baggins
