The count-down is on for Global Circle’s inaugural trip to Ghana! In just a few days, 15 Jewish young professionals from around the country will join AJWS to explore the cultural and political dynamics that drive poverty and injustice in Ghanaian society. Trip participants will roll up their sleeves for a service project, and meet some of AJWS’s grantees that combat HIV/AIDS, promote LGBTI rights, and prevent child trafficking.
Bummed that you couldn’t make the trip this time around? Don’t worry, Global Circle will be blogging from the field to give you a sense of the sights, sounds and social justice issues they’re encountering. Follow Global Voices next week to read blog posts from trip participants. Stay tuned!
