First Day in Tamale for our 2015 Winter Field Reps!

All 14 of our Winter Field Reps have arrived in Tamale and we could not be more excited to kick off the program today!

After a 13 hour bus ride from Accra and an early arrival into Tamale this morning at 4:30am, the field reps zombied right into their beds at Gillbt for some much needed sleep. We started the day together at noon with some Red Red (a local Ghanian red bean concoction) with fried plantains. We got to know each other more over a good game of Giranamo and then had the Ghana 101 presentation to get everyone acquainted to their life over the next 3 weeks.

With a crash course on Tamale, everyone was put into their teams and sent off on a scavenger hunt to put their knowledge to the test.
