Devon Hamilton is currently volunteering on a 10-week project Ghana to complete the international placement component of Humber College’s International Development Management Studies program.
Devon is working with the YMCA and the Opportunities Industrialization Center (OIC) in Takoradi to increase awareness about the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Devon’s blog is an incredible resource including detailed descriptions of Takoradi, accommodations and the work her team is completing. Check out Devon’s blog about her team’s second MDG workshop.
