Obama is headed to Ghana today after wrapping up the G8 Summit in Italy. This is Obama’s first visit to Africa as president. I can’t even begin to imagine the buzz in Accra. I spent 4 months living in Ghana and have immense love for the nation. Ghanians are some of the kindest & hardworking people I have ever met.
One.org summed up Obama’s visist as a trip that “will shine an international spotlight on Ghana’s success story, and others like it, where strong African leadership, entrepreneurship and smart donor policies and investments are laying the groundwork for stability, prosperity and a brighter future.”
