WOMEN IN PROGRESS INC
May 19, 2010
I noticed a big change in the women as they became more proficient, more organized and more self-assured that they are able to work with tourists. The highlight was when the women showed just how happy my work has made them. Elizabeth, co-owner of Eli-Emma, said "I never could have imagined that someday we would be having this business and tourists would come here to see us!"
One thing that still shocks me everyday is how happy the people in Cape Coast are. They are so happy and friendly even though by our standards they have so little. They are ever ready to help you out. I have had people run down the street to catch me a cab, chase me down to give me something I have dropped, and many gifts from people I do not even know. Even when facing hardships the people here are beautiful, loving and caring people and we could all learn so much from them.
