Holly and Paul McNally

Ghanaian children are beautiful. Statuesque with pleasing features, they are cheerful, attentive and respectful. With their indefatigable powers of concentration, they are a pleasure to teach. This was the conclusion of my husband Paul and myself after spending a week as part of a library camp in Goi where we taught woodworking and crocheting respectively.

The Osu libraries are welcoming community hubs where wonderful things happen. Reading of course is primary but theatre and adult literacy classes are also prominent. There is even a small symphony orchestra. Older students are provided a quiet and lit area to study (it is dark at 6 pm) with textbooks provided on site.

Yes, Ghanaian children are beautiful but so was the entire Osu experience. I recommend it. It may change your life.
