Rebuilding Foundations

An exploration of international development work in Africa


It’s been a month since arriving in Ghana and I’m starting to feel more comfortable here.  Work is less daunting now that I’m more familiar with the country and my coworkers.  Moreover, I’m starting to find happiness in small things.

Here’s a short list of things that make me content:

  • The feel of washing the day’s sweat and dirt off my body
  • Finding lettuce at the market
  • Having a firm poo the day after eating said lettuce
  • An email from home
  • A good night’s sleep
  • Hearing P-Square’s song “Chop My Money” on the radio in my taxi
  • Baby goats
