First Day in Tamale

Despa (good morning!) from Tamale!

After a day of flying and another day on the bus, we were all very excited for the Fellows to arrive up north on Friday night!

After getting settled at the lovely GILLBT guest house we started the day bright and early on Saturday morning with orientation. We spent the morning getting to know each other through some silly icebreakers and learning about Ghana, Tamale and the global water crisis.

After a quick lunch break the Fellows headed into town for a CWS-favorite: the Scavenger Hunt! Everyone loved exploring the market and getting to know their teammates better!

This afternoon, the Fellows are heading into the field for the first time to see some CWS water and solar businesses in action. We can’t wait for them to get out to the communities to really see what CWS is all about!
