I’ve just booked and confirmed a trip to Ghana in mid december, hoping to be back home just in time to watch “Kalle Anka” on tv with my family on christmas eve. The purpose of the trip? To help out with the development of Great Andoh international school – the heart and soul of Emelie – my hero of late. I hope to overcome the frustrations associated with doing business in Ghana when it comes to people showing up at meetings in time if not on time. Already nervous about the endless hours I’m going to spend in traffic – all meetings will have to be scheduled between 10 am and 2 pm, the only time you can move from one end of Accra to the other under three hours in traffic.

I’m anxiously hoping to be able to help ease things for Emelie and great Andoh and to start a new milestone towards creating opportunities for needy and vulnerable children in Kasoa.

The opportunity of seeing my 86 year old mother again in less than 6 months is also an inspiration.
