"Travel with Purpose" Harambee visits Ivory Coast (May 20-26, 2018)

A contingent of 13 Harambee members and supporters from Spain, Italy, Switzerland and the US visited local projects in Ivory Coast. They visited Wale Health Center in Yamoussoukro and its branch in Tomboukro, training schools and centers, EFA, ILOMBA, YARANI and AKATIO, where they met and spoke with directors, teachers, students and local town-folks.  These meetings are in keeping with Harambee's goal of transparency, allowing donors to witness the impact of their support to the various communities in the country.  It was a rewarding experience to see young men and women learn skills in literacy, agriculture, cooking, sewing, construction masonry & HVAC, hotel management, entrepreneurship, etc. The local children interacted and played happily with the visitors and posed for some photo opportunities.  The Harambee communication team also interviewed individuals for personal testimony. It was a week well-spent, learning about African culture and meeting the genteel and beautiful people of Ivory Coast.
