A Day in the Life, Patriensa June 2010

Notes from Edward Wang-

Every day we would walk to the village after breakfast of tea/coffee/ biscuits (took about 30 minutes) and on the way there we would get looks and attention especially from the village children.

In the village, we would get to work whether it was educating the school children on hand sanitation, talking to specific contacts, procuring materials for the water system, helping build the water system, watching the world cup, etc. After getting our tasks done, we would head back to the guest house.

The guest house was incredible and the contacts Pastor Kofi and Dr. Darkwa provided were so much help. Francis (local translator and guide) and the drivers Yaw and Augustine were great as well. Can’t forget the cook either because she was amazing.

But the greatest support came from the local villagers. However, they would not trust us with a tool. But they saw what we were doing and wanted to help as much as they could and we could not have done it without them.
