Great place for students! I learned a lot and was very impressed with all the doctors. Dr. Addison, Dr. Mawuse, and Dr. York were particularly excellent, and please thank them for letting us follow them around!
Being with a host family is a wonderful experience. Thank you to everyone for helping us.
FRANK & OGVO – FRANK IS AMAZING!! Frank took very good care of us, and made sure we were safe and happy. Frank made the experience of being in Ghana very good!

I spent two wonderful weeks in Kumasi, Ghana. The food, the host family, the work – everything was excellent! You really get to see Ghana from within which is such a fantastic experience. Still, the security always felt very high.
