Dear Fauziyah, thank you for

Dear Fauziyah,
thank you for the post. It would be nice if the course would be open to non-African citizen too because it would help many people of the Ngos present on territory understand what could be done and find a more productive approach.
Wish you all the best

Re: Call for Sponsorship

Hey Elina, Its open to non-African citizen only that you may have to be spending more on flight, accommodation and feeding during your stay in Ghana as there is no sponsorship.

@ Vivian: Except you apply for sponsorship from donor agencies which may take some time. I am afraid that is not possible...
