Comments: I was filled with nostalgia as I read these pages.
For one thing, I come from the Upper West region
of Ghana, but more importantly, I attended Navrongo
Sec Schl. between 1975 and 1977. Thanks for taking me
on a mental tour, not only of a great educational
institution, but of reminding me of my roots - Ghana.
Keep the great work going, and more 'ink to your pens'.
God bless you.

I grew up in a section of Kumasi with a lot of people from the north, so visiting this site really brings back a lot memories. Congratulations this is a wonderful piece of work.

Comments: Hi guys, just wanted to let you know that you did a good job with your web page on Navorago.
I am from Bolgatanga. In fact I went back home last year for
Christmas. It is not very often that I see things written
about the northern part of Ghana. Most people don't know much
about he north because they never make it up that far, but the
north is beautiful place. Most of the people there are very
nice infact, I enjoy the north more than the south. My father is
a layer in Accra and my mother and my siblings are all in Bolgaa
My mother is a principle of zaare islamic primary school in
Bolga. If all goes well, my mother will be visting me next year.
Congrats. on your marriage. I plan on getting married too next year.
So, when do you plan on visiting Ghana? Well, write back soon.

Comments: Hello! Your homepage is gorgeous, and informative.
We lived in Ouaga for two years (1988-1990) and went back
to visit family in Ghana and friends in Ouaga this December
and passed through "your" area. The road from Tamale to
Bolga is as awful as ever, especially on an STC bus
travelling much too fast in the dead of night. There are
three major construction contractors working on it though.
Dust is more prevalent than ever! Did you visit Ouaga?
It has changed a great deal, and is becoming a real
city instead of a constellation of villages--lots of
multistory buildings. Well, I'll stop here. We'll keep
reading your page from Toronto!

Comments: First I congratulate you for the efforts put in to get those towns quite elaboratory covered on the internet. I also thank you, as a Ghanaian for your dedicated work to help those communities. I had been to both towns on different periods, during the Ghana PHC reviews. I visited the Paga crocodile pond also (which nearer to Navrongo). I feel those towns need to be high-lighted, perhaps through that the world would recognize their needs and assist the people there.
