Our unique workshops provide a great way for you to travel with a group of your peers and gain hands on experience in a specific area of interest in Ghana. Workshops incorporate lectures, touring and hands on activities within a structured curriculum and take place during specified dates in the summer and winter. Workshop groups are comprised of 12-16 participants and the programs generally last 2-4 weeks.
