My wife and I volunteered with Global Mamas for three months in 2008. In truth, my wife was the formal volunteer, having arranged to offer her graphic designs skills to help with the organization's catalog, annual report, packaging, etc. To make myself useful, I wrote a few articles about and for the organization and contributed to a photo coffee table book about Ghana, where Global Mamas works: http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/750329. I cannot say enough about both the mission and people that make Global Mamas such a special organization. Committed to helping woman-owned business succeed, they are helping Ghanaians help themselves, the mark of a sustainable and enduring solution. Learn how contribute, either in time or money, by visiting their website: http://www.globalmamas.org Our experience in Ghana was transformative, and we encourage anyone looking for an adventure and one in which you will every day feel appreciated and welcomed, to consider volunteering with Global Mamas.
