This summer I am going to Ghana as part of an international development trip in my MPA program. I am taking coursework right now in preparation. We will be conducting market research and hope it will be helpful. I don't think I'm going to be able to go in and tell anyone how to live their lives. I am actually hoping to learn from them and hope that some statistical analysis on our side will help in economic decision making.
If you'd like to help by donating $5, $10, $25 or more I'd love it. I've got a fundraising website set up at pledgie.com: http://pledgie.com/campaigns/14092
Other than that I am trying to work hard and do well in school.
