Event description

Description

You are cordially invited to the launch of our first ever anthology, Transformations: Letters and Other Exchanges Between Students in Ghana and the Pacific Northwest, 2016-2017, which will feature student readings, food and beverages, and the opportunity to learn more about our work.

This book’s title, Transformations, reflects Yo Ghana!’s purpose, to put thousands of diverse students to work at “making the world a smaller place”—and a better one, too. Yo Ghana! is a 501(c)3 charitable organization that fosters transformative exchanges between students in Ghana and the Pacific Northwest through the power of the written word.

The works published in this book were selected over the school year by several judges on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. They are organized into four categories:
  • Getting to Know Each Other;
  • Sharing Stories;
  • Overcoming Challenges; and
  • Improving Our Communities.
A few of our schools chose additional options from our growing menu:
  • poetry;
  • photography and identity;
  • oral history; and
  • memoir.

We hope you will join us for this special showcase of student work, and support the next generation of young writers.

Suggested donation is $6-25 which covers the cost of a book and helps us meet our goal of raising $3,000 in matching funds.
