Volunteer and teacher, Mr Elliott Ajai-Ajagbe, on joining the school regeneration project
September 23, 2014
I am writing this to thank the trust for welcoming me to volunteer my time and epxertise to such a wealthy cause. It was an honour and privilege to be involved in such a moving experience. Helping to regenerate the Ekumfi Etsibeedu School alongside members of the community, allowed me to immerse myself in the culture and simple joy of proud individuals in difficult conditions. I got to know not only their quiet humility but their pride and strength also.
Working with the children of the village, teaching English through games and drama, was obviously the highlight for me, as it is what I do. Being able to voluteer and offer this set of skills to bring smiles, skills and games to kids in an environment where there isn't even fresh or running water or other necessities was something humbling and inspiring. I will never forget my time in Ekumfi or the good work the trust does and has incooperated me into...I will be back!
