Godwin's Plea for Ghana

Godwin published a plea to the world from Ghana at our other site, G-lish. Here is an excerpt: 

"Ghanaians talk a lot and we have a reputation for being friendly. However, our culture also says that we should not question our seniors. No matter what our seniors say or do, we must accept their word as absolute truth, even if they are mistaken or lying.

I’ve gotten myself into a lot of hot water for challenging my seniors ever since I can remember." 

If you want to read the whole story--it's fascinating, surprising, and bashes a few Africa stereotypes--click the link

Also, you can download our free Guide to Volunteering in Ghana over there, and the free guide for how to set up an NGO in Ghana.
