By Heather Foye- "working with PACE-Ghana was an incredible experience..." Fordham Global Outreach-Ghana team 2011 Working with the PACE-Ghana team was an incredible experience, and I am so glad that I was able to travel to Ghana. It was great to feel like part of a community while working on various projects in the schools, library, and hospital of Worawora.
Worawora Community Library
PACE-Ghana initiated an educational program through the community library that students and community members use to access educational resources.
Okyeame Dankwa Memorial Community Library
Established in the summer 2004, is Okyeame Dankwa Memorial Community Library, Worawora community first library. The Facility consists of over 5,000 diverse books for all educational levels and a computer training center. It serves as a resource center where you can find all levels of Ghana educational textbooks, American text books, medical references, religions, daily newspaper, and children stories books from Kwaku Anansi to Dr. Seus's. A very good place for all kinds of research and references. Stop by for a visit if you're ever in Ghana Volta Region area.
