Comments: I lived at Nkenkaasu-Ashanti for two years. (1992-1994) I worked for GHANA SOCIETY OF THE PHYSICALLY DISABLED. I learned lots of things ... I just want to say "thank you" to all Ghanian people. And I want you to know the SOCIETY which has difficulty to run their school cause of shortage of food, tools and money. If you are interested in this message please contact to the chairman. (He is disabled but also doing his best even he dosen't sleep.)

Comments: Presently, two classes in our elementary school are corresponding via snail mail with students in Navrongo. The name of a student in another school district was given to me via e-mail and that student shared our letters with the students in Navrongo. Two of our school's goals are to increase the children's written and oral communication skills and to expose the children to other cultures. Writing to pen-pals is one way to achieve those goals.

Comments: Just passing through. I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Brong Ahafo Region from 1981-83---the years of turmoil, strife, of want, and damn little beer (let alone food). After peace corps, got masters and joined CARE. Three years in Bangladesh and 2 1/2 years in Somalia. All the best to both of you.

Comments: pictures of the currency. Second favorite was the photo of Africa. The format is clear and concise. I really enjoy the simple, non-cluttered approch to your layout. Also, I believe the historical information is basic enough to be easily understood by the majority of Americans who have had very little exposure to the contry, culture and people. Well done. All the best, Marti like
