Students are away for homestay weekend until Sunday. Alana, Tiff, and Nick are in Tema (about an hour east of Accra), Kaneisha is at Brenu Beach, and Natalia, Liz, James, Ben, and Joel are in Cape Coast. Dr. Guasco, the 2014 resident director for the program leaves tomorrow for the US after a two week visit. He has bonded with Thomas and Sammy over football and occasionally they yell at the TV.
Yesterday I stopped by Sankofa School in the village of Eguafo to pick up James and Liz and took these photos. Liz was sitting peacefully with a little girl on her lap and surrounded by many children and James first had one student, then two, then three hug him affectionately for photos. These are few of the many endearing moments I saw in the last three weeks and hope that these moments will leave lasting memories in our students.
