Hi everyone,

I am a future Ghanian volunteer, leaving in a month as an environmental educator.

Would anyone be willing to talk with me about their experience? It would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

Thanks, Anne

Hi Anne! I'm leaving for Ghana, too, in two weeks. Do you have any idea how many trainees there'll be at staging?

I also wanted to see if any RPCVs are willing to share their experience. I'm most curious to find out if there is anything that volunteers wish that they brought with them, but hadn't. Is there anything that was surprisingly unavailable/unaccessible in Ghana? Most basically I want to know if I can get face wash, peanut butter, and a haircut once in awhile. Oh and how's the mail system?

Not only can you get face wash and a haircut; you'll never think of peanut butter (groundnut paste) the same again.

Hello! I have recently been invited to participate in Ghana on behalf of the peace corps as a science teacher. I have some questions regarding seconday opportunities in Ghana.

More specifically, is there anyone on this message board that worked with AIDS/HIV affected individuals on a regular basis as a side project? If so, how frequently and to what extent did you get involved in the community trying to educate the population about HIV prevention?

Finally, for the science teachers do you have any advice? I have never taught before and I have some trepidation about the position.

Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
