Review for ASAP (Americans Serving Abroad Projects) , Marcellus, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have participated in two ASAP projects to Ghana, and found them both to be amazing experiences.

My first trip was in Feb/March 2014, and I went on a second trip in Oct 2015. For the first trip, I didn't know what to expect, but felt that ASAP's president, Lauri, prepared us well. Through group meetings and Facebook, she provided a wealth of information, and gave us the opportunity to get to know each other before the trip even began. She took care of all arrangements, making it very easy to enjoy the experience. Both teams came together very quickly with ideas and suggestions to complete the project and improve future projects.

Once arriving in Ghana, our partner organization, Sem Fronteiras took very good care of us. I felt very safe. Accommodations were acceptable, clean and secure. In addition to planning our village mobile health clinics, they also gave us the opportunity to enjoy the culture of Ghana. I was able to attend a wedding, food shop in the community markets, and see how people live their lives day by day.
Days were long, but fulfilling in so many ways. I came back with a love for the country, and a greater appreciation of my many blessings.
We can't change the world... but we CAN change the world for one person.
