Story of Sonne, (Netherlands)

On October 8 I left my home to go on the most amazing trip I have ever made in my life. I went to Ghana. When I got on the plane I had my first taste of Ghana, there where a lot of Ghanaians on the plane (surprise surprise). They were all so nice, a few asked me if it was my first time to Ghana, what I was going to do, they are really interested in you and so nice and friendly. You are welcome is a sentence they use a lot and whenever you look like you need a little help they will offer to help you. I immediately felt ‘at home’. That feeling didn’t change, it got even stronger the longer I stayed there.

I stayed with a hostfamily, which is really nice because you get to know the culture so well and you start feeling at home really quick. I had the most fantastic hostfamily and as they said: You will always have family in Ghana and we are family! And that started from the first day and we grew even closer in the months I’ve been there.

At the beginning of my first week I met Anthony, one of the (amazing) staff members. He showed me around Kumasi, explained the public transport and how to deal with taxi drivers, and introduced me with the Ghanaian food. After that day the volunteering started. I’ve been in Ghana for three months. First I started with 5 weeks of public health (doing basic medical checks in villages, markets, schools on the people and the children.) after that I did 4 weeks volunteering in a hospital in Kumasi and I finished with 2 weeks in Kumasi’s Children’s home. All the volunteering was really cool and I learned so much and so many different things. You see a lot and you learn about the culture and meet a lot of different awesome people.

In the weekends we had free time and I did a lot of traveling with the other volunteers. We saw a lot of different places from cape coast to Volta and Mole. Ghana is really beautiful! Every Wednesday we had a meeting in the office with all the volunteers and the staff (Anthony and Gabby and sometimes other people). The meetings were really nice, you got to know the other volunteers and we did really cool stuff. We had dance lessons, Twi lessons (local language), cooking lessons but also just really nice afternoons with just talking, laughing, eating and singing. Gabby and Anthony were really awesome and so nice. They helped you whenever you needed them and always asked how you were, how the volunteering was going and if you needed any help. You could always call them, when we went on a trip in the weekend and we had some trouble getting a trotro (local buses) we could call them and they knew what to do.

I went to Ghana with no expectations, an open mind and just let the things happen. I had the most amazing time in my life and met some fantastic people and friends/family for life. In those 3 months I have experienced more then I have in my entire life so far. It was a great experience, so special and I am so grateful that I had and took the opportunity to go. Ghana really became my second home. I love the culture, the word "obruni", the people, the whole way of life, it’s just unforgettable. They have inspired me to get the most out of life and always care about others no matter what. They are incredible people, and I will never ever forget them.
