Hello! My name is Brittney and I am a business student at the University of Colorado – Boulder. I am traveling to Ghana, Africa in May and I am asking for your help and support. 
I will be volunteering with Ghana Volunteer Corps, working in an orphanage near Accra and living with a host family. I hope to learn more about the disparity that exists and the ways in which we can help. My heart goes out to the children in Africa who live in poverty and who have been abandoned by parents taken by AIDS and other illnesses.
I realize that so many of us are so fortunate and take for granted the simple things we have, and it has become a passion of mine to find out how I can give back to these helpless children.
I plan to use this blog as a journal and update it with pictures and posts about my experiences. I hope that many of you choose to follow me on this journey.
            If you are able to help in any way I would greatly appreciate your support. A little bit can go a long way!
