Resolved Question: Should I volunteer in
It has always been my dream to volunteer in Africa. Next summer, I am going with a teen program to an African country of my choosing. I have narrowed my options down to either Ghana or Senegal, but I'm not sure which country I would like to go to! I want to go to Senegal because I am studying French, but I'm not sure if Senegal has the true African culture (I hear it is very modern). Ghana, on the other hand, I know has many school and orphanages in dire need of assistance, and they speak English there. I know very little about either country... can anyone assist me in my descision!
