Everywhere we went in Ghana in our bus---the people would gather around or come up to the windows and try to sell their goods to us. I was thankful for the bus because it had air conditioning--I do not do well in hot climates, so the respite the bus provided from the heat was welcome.
While in Mole--two young men from a village (Damongo) not to far away sought Shirley out---they were Muslim (Ghana is about 1/2 Christian and 1/2 Muslim---and is a good example of a country where all the religions co-exist peacefully) and knew the sister of one of the Homebase kids--as she had visited their village before while in Ghana.
These two young men attended college in another town---taking a long bus ride to go to school--but also had started a school in their village---and "took care of the village kids that needed extra care." We had brought some supplies for their school.
The young men invited us to come the next day and visit their village, and their school children would do a "small dance performance" for us. Here are some of the photos I took that day---
This Is Ibrahim--one of the young men who invited us, and he helps run the local school.

After they finished the Homebase kids presented the supplies we brought, and shook the dancers hands....
Then they got inside the dancer's circle and performed an Alaskan native Yupik song for them...as we were leaving I heard some of the little kids from the village singing the song...(ah! music! the universal language!)
Here are some shots of the village and some villagers...
Their school needs and welcomes supplies--I plan to send them a few boxes of children's books in English---they are learning English. If you would like to contribute books or $$$ toward the postage--please e-mail me : aurora at morningstarbooks dot com and I will get right back to you! and bless you....
