Hello everyone,My name is Charlotte Perrichot and I study Environmental and prevention management in Brussels. This summer I went to Ghana for 6 weeks to work as a volunteer in a basic school and teach little children. It was a wonderful experience! People in Ghana are so kind, helpful, friendly, very nice and they are smiling all the time! I loved being there.
I lived with a very nice family who took took care of me as if I was their own child. We cooked together, we went to church together, we went to places together and they really saw me as a part of their family. I even went to a wedding and to a funeral, which were amazing experiences. Going to church in Africa is so much fun and when you’re walking in the streets you hear music everywhere and there are people smiling everywhere. It’s such a different world, but it was an amazing experience. I would go definitely go back if I had the chance…
In the morning I took the bus that took me to the school and there I had to help the teachers. I had to sing with the children and teach them how to write. I never worked with children before, so in the beginning it was scary, but the people are so friendly I quickly got used to it and I loved it.
I also travelled around Ghana a bit and I saw how beautiful the country is. There are beautiful beaches, national parks with a lot of animals and the nature is amazing. It’s such a beautiful green country.
