    This trip has taught me a lot from you and the team. The consultation on day eight was exceptional and i will never forget anything from the AAC training. God bless smiles for speech

    Hi Shannon, I was thrilled to read this post — Bless you for all the good you do! A few years ago, I spent 3 weeks working in the tiny rural Ghanaian village of Kpando alongside my college-age son. He had forged a connection with the founder of an orphanage there, so our time was spent on school work and playing with babies and young people up to age 20; it was a real eye-opener and honestly, probably one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, but what a total privilege! As you said, it felt like ‘instant results’! Your enthusiasm is contagious and I appreciate being in the world with you!

    Thanks for another brilliant article which really moved me as I read it!! It’s phenomenal just how much everyone achieved in 10 days. I think I was too exhausted to take it all in at the time! You’ve left a really important legacy through your work with the students and families and we’ll continue to see the fruits of that as time goes on. Thanks again!

  5. Melissa says:

    Wow! Thanks so much for sharing this experience with us. I am truly inspired and going to do some research on doing a trip in the future and taking a look at what I can do to support others who do this work in Ghana on a regular basis.

    It was great and humbling meeting you and the team.
    Thanks for the fun time and the great learning experience!

  8. Prudence says:

    Thank you Shannon and your team for what you do everyday and what you went to do in Ghana. I’m a Ghanaian living in the US and just graduated as an SLP last December, doing my clinical fellowship now. As I read your post and saw the pictures, I couldn’t stop the nostalgia, but more than that is the overwhelming feeling of how much work there is to do in Ghana.
    Thanks again for reminding me of how much my work is very much needed in Ghana.

  9. My trip to Ghana this month was an adventure. It was the first time I d traveled to a developing country, one of the most ambitious projects I ve had the pleasure of joining and quite the cultural experience. I m also happy to say that Plan B was a resounding success.
