WOMEN IN PROGRESS INC
May 25, 2010

Prior to my volunteer experience with WIP,I had traveled around the world, but never by myself. Even though I arrived in Ghana by myself, I had instant friends and support with other WIP volunteers and staff. Now, six years later, I still keep in contact with my Ghanaian friends and other WIP volunteers. The organization is wonderful to let you set your own pace for work. Also, I feel that the organization is really making a huge difference in Ghana. I have seen tremendous growth in the last six years as more and more Ghanaians have financially benefited from the work of WIP women, staff and volunteers
