Cheers to that Andy
If anyone has additional questions or a negative response to this post, Andy you can give them my Email.
A year ago, I got back from a wonderful volunteer travel experience in Ghana. I'm curious why you don't think volunteer travel is a good idea? It seems from my reading your Ghana posts that you're spending a lot of time on the logistics of travel, rather than getting to know the country and the people who live there -- the reverse is true in a (good) volunteer travel experience.
I think paying to Volunteer is not good.
This is the second time I have been to Ghana.
Volunteers in my experience live in fishbowls until they are done traveling, then then do a couple of weeks of travel and leave.
The price of Volunteering in Africa is crazy.
I have not spent 11 months of my life in West Africa.
I do not see any big problems in Ghana, sort of a middle range country. I do see something wrong when everone believes there is a NEED to send Volunteers to Ghana to help them.
I think they can take care of themselves.
Marcus, I cannot send them your emails because I do not get an email from them with theirs.
