I have 21 years of Ghana experience and have now lived in this West African country for 12 years. A simple conclusion would be that I always think it is a good idea when someone wants to travel to Ghana. Often that is indeed the case, yet in this blog you are also going to find reasons why you don’t have to come to Ghana.
In this blog post I would like to tell you how I communicated with the people at home 20 years ago, the huge development there has been in the field of telecommunications in Ghana. I also inform you about what the title promises; How about Wi-Fi and internet in Ghana. Click here if you want to read the practical part right away! Finally, I’ll tell you about the current challenges with the internet when traveling through Ghana.
There is a lot of information available on the harmful aspects of volunteering abroad. Don’t people look it up? Or does one go to the website of such an organization and see the great videos and reviews and then forget that orphanage tourism is not ok? In this blog, I seek the answer to how it is that people who are ‘woke’, intelligent, want to do the right thing and yet end up at terrible voluntourism projects.
Ik ben een groot fan van wonen en leven in Ghana, maar net als overal ter wereld is het echt niet altijd leuk hier. De kunst is om de negatieve aspecten om te buigen en daar ga ik je bij helpen in dit artikel. Er zijn heel veel verschillende minder leuke aspecten aan het leven hier, die per persoon en per situatie verschillen. Daarmee bedoel ik te zeggen dat niet elke situatie door een ieder als negatief of positief ervaren wordt. Het maakt uit waar in Ghana je woont, of je een man of vrouw bent. Het ligt aan de bui waarin je die dag bent, het ligt aan de financiële middelen die je ter beschikking hebt en de reden waarom je in Afrika bent.
Cecilia heeft zich 5 weken ingezet in het buitenland door vrijwilligerswerk te doen bij Banko Women center. Helaas gaan we bijna afscheid nemen, maar eerst mocht ik haar nog interviewen over haar ervaring hier in Ghana.
One of the services I offer is the coach in Ghana program. Especially for people who get stuck, who want to get away from it all, but who also want to work on themselves and break patterns. Change of environment alone is not enough to bring about an overall change. I realize that these are beautiful words that I write like that, but what can you and I really achieve together during the coaching program in Ghana.
In this blog you can read the special story of Karel. One of the many people I have been able to help over the past 10 years.
I'm chasing my laptop with socks on, trying to figure out what I want to tell you about Ghana. Until I suddenly thought…. I'm after the laptop with socks on. I'm sure some people think this is weird to read. Because isn't it always warm in Ghana?? No, hahahahaha. It's time for me to write about the weather in Ghana. And I'm going to take a different approach in this blog. After all, there are plenty of boring articles about the weather! First I will answer the questions and then I will go to my gallery looking for photos of each month in the year and I will add them in this post. So you can get the weather in Ghana visually
If you only eat in restaurants during your Ghana trip, you miss out on a lot…. After all, you can get to know the locals by eating with them. But what do they sell on the street? And what can you eat? Is it safe? Is there vegetarian food?
As you have read before, we no longer offer volunteering at Moon&Star guesthouse in Ghana. But you are certainly welcome with us during your gap year or sabbatical. But what can you actually do when you spend your gap year in Ghana at Moon&Star guesthouse and with my guidance? I’ll tell you more in this blog.
