Returning to Ghana, West Africa this summer was an amazing experience and a dream come true! Many of the MAC students who were with us last year helped raise money to send school supplies (pencil pouches, pencils, and erasers) to Mafi Tsati Village earlier in the year. Then, right before the end of the year, some students brought in soccer balls, Frisbees, and Chinese jump ropes for me to bring to the kids in the village. The toys were a huge hit, especially the soccer balls, which were a hit at school and after!
It was great to see kids using their supplies during the lessons I taught at the village school this summer. If you scroll down through the photos below, you’ll see evidence of school supplies, soccer balls, and Frisbees (if you’re diligent, you may even spot a MAC t-shirt or two).

I hope our MAC students, those returning, those who’ve moved on to Ada Harris, and those who are new to our class this year, have all had a wonderful summer! Mine was certainly wonderful, and now I’m very excited to be going back to school!
Hugs, Ms. Boyesen
Nukunu is ready to play!
The kids love posing for photos and showing off their new toys. The MAC shirts were a hot commodity as well. This is Grace and David (brother and sister) whose mom, Augustina, was my amazing cook both times I visited the village (lots of photos of her on my travel blog).
Thanks for checking out the pictures! If a teacher from Africa were to visit Cardiff, what would you hope he or she would bring to share?
