Unleash Kids is off to Ghana

(This is written by the parents of Adam Holt. It is exactly 50 years since we taught school in West Africa and travelled in these countries. Very exciting to see these updates!)

Photos being shared from Coastal Ghana. There have been travel glitches, but all in all, an eye opening exciting experience. Some of the early photos from Accra: people, architecture, market crafts, train tracks, casino lights.IMG_20150112_110125490b IMG_20150112_112152442b IMG_20150112_113012427b IMG_20150112_114559659b IMG_20150112_154020619_HDRb IMG_20150112_155501227b IMG_20150112_155829652b IMG_20150112_221025407bAnd then a few more….kites, little people, hardware and food for sale,  point to what ailes you, masks, fabric, letter writers (typewriters!) and more.IMG_20150114_151643838 IMG_20150114_162502509_HDR IMG_20150114_165933846 IMG_20150114_174231904_HDR IMG_20150114_175619511 IMG_20150114_182552842 IMG_20150115_101456173 IMG_20150115_101521481B IMG_20150115_110450857

Today was a shopping day for our son in Accra, Ghana, for electronic materials for a girls school nearby:
[Solar/battery/wire supplies acquired here in town today after much scrambling/research over past 36 hrs especially to piece together a Girls High School’s digital library they’re calling Internet-in-a-Box.
Representing 6 months of procurement, coming to a close, or very close..Ghana strangely has very little clue about solar energy for now.
This store’s actually called “DEVICE: tech addiction”]

“Thanks to George & Ishmael who took time to drive us around and make calls from their old van Thur/Fri. Since they were both raised in the town where we’re headed, they hope these education ventures lead the dying slave port town in some more hopeful directions.
In this photo, George is just counting the small notes with Maryanne, paying 1000 GH₵ for two 100W solar panels, at a huge/empty engineering supplier “Deng Ltd” who service generators / inverters etc all around the region including Liberia etc.This is about US $300.”
