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

Rating: 5 stars  

ASAP afforded me an amazing opportunity to experience Africa. ASAP kept the trip affordable and set an impressive itinerary that made it a possible to give back while being culturally immersed in Ghana. Our Community Development team traveled from Accra all the way to Mole National Park. We worked with over 1,000 youth teaching literacy, Days for Girls curriculum, Dementia awareness and dental health at a number of schools. We cooked with a host family, attended church, shopped at the market and danced and drummed on the beach. Our safari trip in Mole park offered breathtaking views of nature. The spirit of the Ghanaian people was generous and welcoming and our guides were AMAZING! Anyone seeking a thoughtful and rewarding journey should go with ASAP.
It was a highlight of my life.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

ASAP offered me a one of a kind travel experience where I was challenged, culturally immersed and participated in improving the lives of children and mothers. It was a gift to me, a blessing. Anyone seeking to do something meaningful in this life should try do a journey like this. In 10 days we reached 1,400 youth, including mothers, providing instruction in dementia awareness, dental hygiene, Days for Girls menstruation information and kits, as well as literacy and fluoride treatments. While we may take this information for granted in the "advanced" nations, it makes a world of difference to these youth in Ghana. I was impressed with the children's resilience and strength, many who walk long distances to get to school in inadequate shoes, yet they persevere and value their education. This trip truly broadened my scope on the world and has inspired me to continue more trips like this.
