It's a Sister act for MoM

Each and every volunteer who comes to MoM brings with them unique talents or perspectives that help us grow in different ways and we appreciate them all. We picked up a new volunteer last night who is special to me for much more personal reasons. I am proud to let you know that my sister Rachelle arrived safely and will be spending the next four months working with MoM to support our efforts in a number of areas. Born in Accra, Rachelle spent much of her childhood here in Ghana, first in the Upper West Region and then in the Brong Ahafo Region until 2005 when my family relocated permanently back to the US. Although her primary focus during her stay will be one-on-one support to the AvTech girls in their grammar and math development, Rachelle is also looking forward to using her background in education to help reorganize sessions in the Fulani camp!
