We have organised summer camp with the children from Moree. We have made a lot of preparations towards our holidays. Most of our luggages were packed on the roof of the bus. Each child had a seat on the bus, something not too common on public transportation and the kids seemed very comfortable.  Kofi, Mary, 2 German volunteers, Amina and her 2 sons, John - Malaika's uncle, and 26 children, are ready to leave for the camp in Volta Region.

After 6 hours of driving, we arrived at a small town - Anlo Afiadenyigba. We chose the best place to camp. There were sand and palm trees all around. The positioning of small camp tents wasn't a lofty task. Unfortunately it was more difficult to cope with bigger tents, especially when some parts were mixed while printing the "Freesprit" logo on it. Luckily we had some volunteers as well as John, who had some knowledge on tent erection. We pitched the last tents in the dark. In the end, our camp looked impressive.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ghana is a very religious country. For that reason, each day here begins with a common prayer, devotion to God and it didn't matter to which church the children belonged. Baptists, Catholics, Methodists, Presbyterians and Muslims, they all prayed together. The next activity according to our campus schedule was shower time. To wash themselves, the children had to take water from a well and had to carry a full bucket to the small room which was used as a bathroom. Even though the kids were taking a shower in groups, it t took them a long time to finish bathing. If the children hadn't seen any sign of breakfast, their conversations in the shower room would probably last till noon. We were trying to introduce fresh vegetables to the children's diet, but it turned out not to be that simple. They are not accustomed to fresh tomatoes and salad, because vegetables are quite expensive in Ghana and most of the families cannot afford it. One of the most popular Ghanaian dishes is Banku with groundnut soup, which is by the way, a specialty of the people in Volta Region. The Children just loved it. After breakfast, which was prepared by Amina, morning training started. It included dancing classes and other sport competitions. The daily routines also involved laundry and cleaning up. Everything went very smooth because the children were willing to help in all duties.
