As Ghana coach and hostess at Moon&Star guesthouse, I am the one who listens to volunteers, students, expats and other guests. I give them a boost where necessary, I comfort them, care for them in case of illness. Besides all this I show them around Ghana, not only literally but also in terms of customs and Ghanaian values.
Furthermore, I help them to reflect, which gives them more insight into themselves or the projects they support here in Ghana.
And suddenly I realised that there are so many people who want to come to Ghana. People who want to travel, work or live here.
People who want to convert their good intentions into positive impact in a sustainable way. People who want to prepare themselves well, so that integration is much easier when the Ghana adventure begins.
