Sophie the Serial Volunteer Returns!

Sophie the Serial Volunteer Returns!

Date Posted: 01/07/2016
Sophie our serial volunteer returns to Volunteer West Africa for her third time, hear about what she'll be up to over the next few months.
I'm Sophie, I've volunteered with Volunteer West Africa (VWA) before, which has earned me the title of 'Sophie the serial volunteer', I guess three visits in under 18 months makes me a regular!

With a background in food, health and nutrition in the UK my previous two placements have centred around these skills, however because of my ongoing working relationship with VWA and their partner organisation, Partner West Africa, over the past year, the trust we have build together has given me the opportunity of returning to Ghana this summer in a temporary project assistant role.  My work this time will focus on supporting Inusah, VWA's brilliant project manager, in his role of managing and coordinating the volunteers and their projects, taking new volunteers on a tour of the area and generally being around to help out (as well as some foodie stuff that I'm always happy to do).  I'm looking forward to welcoming all the new volunteers; it's VWA's busiest summer yet with around 20 volunteers arriving over the next couple of months with a real mix of skills and talents so it will be great to see how their projects and ideas unfold.
I'm trying not to think about September when my time here is once again done (for the moment at least), but for now I'm happy to enjoy the next 3 months in my 'heart home' with my growing VWA family.
