Day 4: Agogo (Monday, April 6th)

As I mentioned before, today started off the real work. After getting some breakfast, we got into the travel bus and spent our days touring a few of the nineteen schools in Agogo. (Nana Sarpong is quite serious about education, you know.)

After that, we headed out to the fish farms and teak forest area that Dan Warren of One Village Planet planted. It was pretty impressive, mostly because none of the lakes where the fish lived existed a year ago. Also, of the million trees planted by One Tree Planet that were lost in a fire, all of them were replanted, creating a pretty dense forest (even though it was mostly saplings that were present in the replanted area).

Overall, it was a pretty good day, though the next two would prove to be even more exciting.

Next: Day 5.
