Rebuilding Foundations

An exploration of international development work in Africa


In honour of the Canadian Thanksgiving holiday, here is a list of things that I’m thankful for in Tamale.  In no particular order:

  • Fantastic coworkers who make it tons of fun to work for Amplify
  • Frequent internet access
  • Pineapples
  • The super fun expat community
  • Ceiling fans
  • My host-family (even if they’re trying to fatten me up with TZ and banku)
  • Chocolate-covered Digestive cookies
  • Running pipe water
  • The way guinea fowls fluff their feathers in the rain
  • Cheese
  • Savanna Dry ciders
  • Refrigeration
  • Being able to watch dawn while jogging in the morning
  • Love and support from people back home
