Thoughts from an agricultural development gal in Ghana

Happy New Year!

Hi blog world,

I hope you all enjoyed the holidays. I had the chance to come home to Canada to spend the last few weeks here and it’s been great! Next week is our big annual EWB National Conference in Toronto, then I’ll be returning to Ghana and my regular blogging.

In the meantime, I wanted to put out one last call for donations to my EWB fundraising campaign. The campaign is called Challenging Perspectives and it’s as much about starting conversations as it is about raising money, so I encourage you to go to the site and read some of the Perspectives.

Thanks to so many generous donations, I’ve raised $4500 for EWB’s African Programs, which supports the work I do in Ghana. This money goes a long way to making our work possible and every little bit counts. Thanks SO MUCH to those who have donated so far!!

The campaign ends tomorrow, so if you’ve been thinking about making a donation, now would be a great time! I’d love to do one final push and raise the last $500 to meet my personal goal of $5000. I’m so close! So if you have an extra $20, $50, $100 or even the whole $500 (I can dream, right?) then visit my page at and make a donation before tomorrow!!

As always, thanks for reading. I’m looking forward to getting back to Ghana and sharing some more stories and experiences with you, so watch out for new posts in the coming month!
