Humbled by Our New Community

This post was written by undergraduate students Mike Gray ’13 and Miguel Vasquez ’12:

Wednesday was our third day in the school, at least for those of us who got to our schools on Monday! For some, it was their first full day teaching, while other groups were well into teaching marketing, finance, and working on their business plans. One thing we noticed was that the students have great ideas and business knowledge, however they lack the entrepreneurial mindset to take action… we guess that’s why we’re here.

At night, we have been working in the churches with adult business owners, and their questions have been great. One thing that continues to amaze us is how giving and helpful Ghanaians are, despite seemingly having so little. The people we have worked with have been so grateful, and this experience has been very humbling.
