Why this blog?

Ghana and Sarah Grant collide and embrace in a one-year placement with Engineers Without Borders (EWB). Although I think that to describe it as a "placement" is insufficient. I anticipate a life-experience full of challenges, adventures, love, learning and growth.

I want to thank you, my friends and family, who are supporting me financially and emotionally in this endeavour. I hope that this blog will help me thank you as I share my experiences, stories and bring life in Ghana a bit closer to you.

To set the tone for this journey, some advice from Bilbo Baggins of Lord of the Rings:
"It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to."
