The extensive piece by Katie Scott draws on interviews with co-founders Elizabeth Fosler-Jones and David del Mar as well as teacher Bryce Driscoll, student Elizabeth Temple, and supporter Matthew Essieh. Thank you, Katie, for capturing so eloquently our attempt to, as you put it, "deepen cross-cultural understanding and build relationships through the art of letter exchange."
We are also delighted to announce that Yo Ghana! Project Coordinator Noah Kurzenhauser, one of our volunteers who seems to never say "no" and always has a smile and a word of encouragement, has been selected to be part of the Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program offered by World Learning Inc.! Noah will spend four weeks in Washington, D.C. and two other states working with youth from across Iraq and the U.S. to facilitate cross-cultural understanding and collaboration.
World Learning works toward building "a just world, driven by engaged citizens and thriving communities"--exactly the sort of work that Noah excels in and that Yo Ghana! aspires to.
We are proud of you, Noah!
