The Team with Grace Amponsah of A New Dawn.    

The Ghana team is now complete with Emily’s arrival on Tuesday night. We hit the ground running on Wednesday morning with a meeting with Grace Amponsah, founder of the Ghanaian NGO A New Dawn and graduate of Ashesi University. Grace is the newest member of our board of directors and we will be partnering with A New Dawn to help us mobilize communities in the Berekuso area.   

Check back here for more on Grace and A New Dawn. She has agreed to be a guest blogger for us later this month.  For now, check her out on facebook.

Applications for our two change agent positions have been rolling in and we began the interview process this week. It’s been exciting to meet with many young Ghanaians who are equally passionate about empowering girls. They are all very talented and accomplished in their own right and it is going to be a tough decision.
