The Ghana Project is a civic engagement and service learning project. This poster presentation will be about the happenings of the project, which is in its first year, starting last semester (it is to be a long term project). Born out of GOLD’s civic engagement efforts, The Ghana Project was created with two main goals: the first being to share Ghanaian culture, help educate others on life in Ghana, and share experiences with another country; the second, long term goal, is to raise money to help build a school in Ghana. The first year of The Ghana Project has been one of getting people used to Ghana, introducing them to the blossoming African country. The poster will review the events of the Project – such as the educational model of last semester, and the cultural events & speakers of this year – as well as discuss the nature of the project itself. It will also talk about the fundraising efforts of the Project, and relate them to the goal of assisting development in Ghana by means of building a school. Finally, there will be mention of the future plans of the Project, continuing into next year.
