For the month of January, join us in celebrating Madeline Lumis, who volunteered at a regional hospital in Ghana in April 2016. “What I enjoyed most was being fully immersed in to the culture in Ho–from eating meals with my hands and bargaining at the local markets to learning of bit of Ewe, the language spoken there. I loved the singing, dancing and drumming of the church choir. I just smiled for the first hour I was there! I would also like to recognize Yaw, my in country coordinator, who was absolutely amazing. I knew I could rely on him for anything. You could tell he absolutely loved brining volunteers to his country!” To celebrate Maddie’s dedication to fostering cross-cultural understanding, those who enroll for an individual, Short-Term or Long-Term Quest to Ghana during the month of January will save $150 off their Quest fee*
