    I’ll See You Next Year . . . . . . . . by Joanna Haslem

    While the rest of the team left last Sunday, I stayed an extra week to work at theReading Camp in Akramaman .

    What is Reading Camp?    by Solomon Worlako Amesimeku

    I came to the GMH Summer Reading Camp, 2018, wondering exactly how it is going to be like. I was expecting it’s just going to be lots of reading. To be candid, the GMH Reading Camp is a lot more than I expected. It’s got lots of fun filled activities, that arouse and sustain the […]

    Just how do you dress when you take your children to the doctor?

    Today at Akramaman, where we are sponsoring a reading camp this week, the local mothers brought their babies and toddlers to the Health Clinic for check ups. There are no doctors in residence but public health nurses run the show. New mothers are given baby weighing cards, told about immunizations, and given other helpful heath […]

    Was it only yesterday ?.  .  .  .                       By Debi Frock

    In August of 2010, six teens, a photographer, and two teachers embarked on a mission to create a Reading Camp at a small village named Akramaman. Little did we know that this was the beginning of something spectacular. Ghanaian Mothers’ Hope invited forty children to that reading camp. The next year it was sixty children, […]

    Five Books Do Make a Difference               by Rev. Becki Neumann

    On Thursday afternoon as the children of Boate village were leaving Reading Camp, they called out, “See you tomorrow,” and we Americans were calling back, “See you tomorrow!” And then it hit me, I would not be saying that tomorrow, or the next day, or the next.

    What a remarkable experience by Joanna Haslem

    What a remarkable experience my first summer reading camp in Ghana has been.  I find it enriching to my soul to find a world so different from my own, yet so the same.  Ghanaians have the same needs, the same emotions, joys and hardships as we do. Children behave as children all over the world, […]

    A New Year, A New Village by Bruce Neumann

    A new year, a new village. Once again, I am leading art with my two Ghanaian Teachers, Auntie Yvonne and Uncle Collins, in the newest of Ghanaian Mothers’ Hope Reading Camps in Boate. On Monday the children made friendship crowns to go with the poem, ‘Friends,” which says, “Friends, friends, 1, 2, 3; all my […]

    One Child at a Time by Janet Neumann, US Volunteer

    Day one of reading camp for me was both familiar and yet, new.  In past years, as the bus with Ghanaian Mothers’ Hope volunteers drives up to a school, smiling children would come running.  I love seeing the children waving and calling out “Auntie Janet, Auntie Janet.” This year my greeting was much quieter, which […]

    Have you ever moved and had to endure that first day in a new school? Do you remember the butterflies jumping around in your stomach? I am sure that is the feeling many of these teachers had on Friday as we facilitated the teacher training here in Ghana. Each year as we prepare for our […]
