Here is some information taken off the Macaulay Honors website for those interested in volunteering this summer. This project will involve you directly with the people you are helping and bring you invaluable exposure to a new country and culture.
"Macaulay in Ghana” Alternative Summer Break –June 3-16, 2009
For the third year in a row, Macaulay Honors College will send University Scholars to participate in an international service project. This year, the service team will go to Ghana to assist in installing mosquito nets for students of the L&A Memorial Academy, a K-8th grade school established in 1998. The school serves over 380 students in Mallam, a very poor area on the outskirts of Accra. Most parents are unemployed or minimally employed in trades. NOTE: In Summer 2008, Solutions Across Borders, an international awareness group at Baruch College, made Macaulay Honors College aware of the school and it’s parent foundation.
