For those of you who don't know, I am going on a 7 week trip with Operation Groundswell to Ghana this summer.
Each participant has to fundraise $1000 that we will then allocate to the variety of programs and projects that we will be working with.
Here is a link to my fundraising page that also has some more info on what I will be doing.

On a crafty note, Ghanaian culture includes an abundance of textiles and crafts. They are most famous for their kente cloth, which is native to the Akan people of Ghana. I am really looking forward to exploring the markets and just taking in all the vibrant, rich colours that are so poplar in Ghanian fabric and crafts.
