It would be wonderful to see you in Ghana!

His name is Kofi and he is in Kindergarten in rural Ghana. To see smiles like his and the excitement of children benefiting from CODE’s programs that support literacy and education in Africa is to witness the incredible value and impact that they have. This is why CODE is extending invitations to its donors and friends to participate in the Seeing is Believing Tour – in Ghana!*

*Spaces are limited.

 

CODE’s Seeing is Believing is planning a 10 day visit to Ghana from February 15 – 25, 2017 that will host a small, intimate group of individuals who share our belief in the importance of literacy and education. In addition to seeing first-hand how our work has such a wonderful and meaningful effect on the lives of these students, their teachers and their futures – we hope this tour will have an equally wonderful and meaningful effect on you.

Please join us for what will prove to be an inspirational visit with CODE to Ghana.

Seeing is believing participants in Ethiopia“I found it to be an amazing learning experience. I was so touched by the smiling faces of the children who are so eager to learn that my husband and I made a commitment to help an inner city reading room in Addis Ababa.” - Maureen Campbell, Seeing is Believing Ethiopia participant

 

For retired librarian Molly Walsh, the trip instilled in her a deep understanding of the hunger to learn in Ethiopia. “My most vivid memories from this trip are the streams of children who seemed forever and everywhere to be going and coming from school on foot; and an image of a young shepherdess, her stick beside her, with her nose in a book in the field while guarding her flock.”
