One thing I enjoyed the most while in Ghana was the time I spent at Days For Girls. Days For Girls is located in Accra, about an hour from where we were staying. The group was split in half, and the first half went into Accra from OTC right when we got to Ghana and the second half went the next week. I was in the second group. Because I was in the second group, I did not help make the kits we handed out to the girls at the school, which was quite the experience. I listened to Bernice talk about sex education and beg kids to tell their parents not to sell them into sex slavery. The girls were so grateful for their kits, I saw the biggest smiles I have ever seen for items I take for granted everyday.
The following week after seeing the huge impact these kits had on the girls, I was able to see where these kits were made. The kits contain reusable feminine hygiene products so girls can stay in school and further their education. Seems as if the sewing machines never stop! While there, I enjoyed great company, put kits together, helped make some of the items in the kits, and learned more about Ghanian culture. It was a rewarding feeling knowing that I was helping keep girls in school and aiding in making their dreams come true.
