We don’t want to stop people from #volunteering, only to help people become ‘good’ volunteers. This is a great blog that bursts a few ‘happy bubbles’ about the #voluntourism sector #partnerwestafrica http://ow.ly/kQLS50hgsIo

Sending a huge thank you to Anais, Sarah, Charlotte, Roberto, Angelo, Eleanor, Lea and Ana. Together these fabulous (or favolosi in italiano!) people ran the 10k portion of the Stramilano Half Marathon and have so far raised over £400 for us. Anais is currently #volunteering with us as part of our #gender team who are researching gender issues in #Ghana, if anyone else wants to add their support to the work she’s doing just follow the link http://ow.ly/LwJq50hhndg.
Thank you to everyone who’s donated already, to the guys and gals who ran the distance and to Anais for her hard work here.

From Sophie, #partnerwestafrica team member:

"Meet Kwaku aged 3 years and 7 months and his Mum Anima. Anima has a shop in the village of Kokrobite selling fresh vegetables, spices, soft drinks, dried fish, oil and other dry goods, it’s where we buy much of the fresh vegetables we use in the guesthouse meals. Today I was out shopping and it started raining (it’s the rainy season here so it’s not just a little bit of rain!), while I was sat in Anima’s shop waiting for the storm to pass I had a snapshot into her everyday routine. It made me think about my friends back in the UK who are parents and how their routine differs from Anima’s, what they want for their children.
Everyone assumes that in Africa, in Ghana, life is totally different to the UK – in some ways it is totally different, but actually, in its purest form, it’s totally the same. Kwaku came home from school: Anima checked his bag to see if he had homework, helped him change out of his school uniform and gave him a snack (today a bofrot, something between a dough ball and a doughnut). In today’s snapshot of life, Anima has the same routine as my friends and millions of parents across the world, she has the same wants for her child: to have food in his belly, clothes to wear, go to school and have a family who cares for him. We regularly see, both at home and abroad, much that divides us and separates us but actually when you look closely there’s much more that unites us and bonds us."
