"I had a wonderful time in Ghana, an experience I would not have been able to have without VACI-Ghana. As an aspiring psychologist, the experience provided me with a unique counseling opportunity that I would not have gained in the UK. The experience was life changing, progressing me personally as well as professionally. I have so much fun and learnt so much- it was so hard to leave!"Olivia Mitchell, University of Birmingham
""I arrived at VACI Ghana with years of experience as a teacher and social worker, as well as an open mind. Meeting school leaders with a sense of curiosity led to fruitful conversations about how my skills could be used to meet the needs of students, staff and the community. My experience at VACI Ghana was a true exchange – of ideas, of cultural experiences, of lessons, and of gratitude. I felt very useful, and had a lot to give based on the needs expressed by the community, but I received so much more in return. My heart was opened to the beautiful country that is Ghana and I was received with open arms and some of the most beautiful smiles on earth. I am so grateful to VACI Ghana for making such an experience possible.""Jenny Ventura, SENECA FAMILY AGENICES USA
