The latest blog from our Volunteer Coordinator, Kerry.
Summer school started on Monday 3 August 2015. I joined the volunteers for the first day to ensure everyone was in the right place. As the volunteers and I had had a week to prepare for summer school, they were keen to get started, so there was a pleasant mix of excitement and anticipation on that first day; the volunteers were more than ready to get stuck in.

Off the Tourist Track – Nima Highway Tours
Located just off the Ring Road close to the heart of Accra, you enter into a series of slums and markets. One of these villages is Nima. I admit that I had never heard of the village before and had no idea what to expect when I booked us on to the tour. It turned out to be an eye-opening experience…
Gareth, Faith and I departed from a taxi at Nima Roundabout to find a man waving at us – I hoped that this would be Charles, the tour guide. Charles is local to the town and has lived there all his life. He’s aim is to show tourists, and anyone that is interested, what life is really like, illustrating that people work hard in tough conditions. You can find out more on his Facebook page.

St Cecilia’s School
In preparation for the volunteers arriving and starting summer school, I was invited to St Cecelia’s (our partner school) to discuss the final details such as class sizes etc. I went with Dan, KSG’s Chair of Trustees in Ghana, Coco, the Ghanaian Volunteer Coordinator and Divine, one of KSG’s Ghanaian Trustees and fellow volunteer at the summer school.
