Day 9 – Rachel N & KG

Saturday morning, got a cheeky wee lie in. We showered, attempting to get rid of the left-over sand, got rid of the empty bottles and gave the rooms a good clean; the staff had been so good to us all week, we wanted to make their job of setting up for the next volunteers as…

Day 8 – Usman

The day began in the usual fashion, with us all being awoken by the roosters outside with the blistering African sun streaming through the windows. Friday was a day that was heightened with excitement. This was our final day in Woe. This meant some of the best activities were to be experienced. Our group, despite…

Day 7 – Scott

The day started in the same fashion as all the rest, an early start with something interesting waiting for us at breakfast. The two groups went about their days work, either teaching or doing manual labour at the two local schools under the unrelenting Ghanaian sun. The activity for the afternoon was a trip to…

Day 6 – Josh

Both groups – minus Miss Little and those who were feeling ill – spent an hour and a half at the Rhema project making bricks this morning. Luckily it was cool today and the work was done in the shade. Then, we all got the bus to Woe EP for the interschool competition, an annual…

Day 5 – Iona

Another early start (yet again). After a night of drama with the tunes on in the room and Julia’s bug bite camera log going great, we piled out for breakfast. Topped up the suncream then off to our first normal day at Rhema school. After turning up ready to teach them how to tell the…

Day 4 – Amy

Monday morning. As people at home roll out of bed dreading the first day of the working week, we awoke from our cosy sleep to the sound of pattering rain outside. Thankfully this delayed our breakfast of egg and leftover sardine sandwiches (believe it or not, this tasted better than it sounded) which gave us…

Day 3 – Ross

Alright boys, it’s Tubs. I’ve gladly volunteered to write this blog of day 3 and am naming it “Day of Spirit”. Why you ask? The answer will soon become clear.¬†We started with a decent breakfast, as always, and it was an early trek down the road to the local church. I’m not a religious person…

Day 2 – Kirsty

Where to start, this morning I didn’t even know what day it was! I woke up to a soaking top and a towel tangled round my legs, I then remembered where I was and was not so confused. I bounced out of bed and hopped over to Rachel and Emma’s bed and shouted ‘wake upppppp’,…

Day 1 – Struan

After our luggage had been handed in and we had been through security we made our way to board the flight. The flights itself went by very fast but was a little bumpy: we got cake and a cup of water for breakfast on board. Mid way through, Ross came up with a game where…
