We are pleased to announce that two “shops” have been converted into classrooms fitting for our KG1 and KG2 students.  They are all excited as the rooms have fresh paint, whiteboards, and posters for learning.  Screened windows/doors allow for great cross ventilation. We have been a bit congested as we wait for the classrooms and […]

Dagara music…drums, bells and “rattles”…

Before the break I made a personal promise to my teachers that I would find a music teacher!  I really stuck my neck out because I really had NO idea how I was going to make it happen!  I knew our children needed to learn the cultural music here and I am aware that a […]

Completing a year of the Sanitation Project 2013-2014 in Medie, Ghana

Joy2theWorld is very proud to partner with Rotary International and Rotary Clubs in the U.S. and Accra to complete the Sanitation Project we started March 1, 2013.  It took a team to produce the planning, negotiating, educating, financing, building of community cooperation, (long, hot, filthy) digging, bulldozing, spreading, planting and finally celebrating and photographing. I […]

Completing Term 2 – and Successful PTA Meeting

A lively and happy PTA meeting started our final day in school for Term 2.  It was standing room only for parents who came to thank us for another great Term.  They said they were so happy because their children can read, write, speak English and they have so much to talk about when they […]

Joy2theWorld is pleading for your help!  We need a safe way to bring the children to school every day.  Many more children will come if we can provide transportation.   We can also put this to good use on our field trips! Maybe your church or club would like to help with this project…We’ve been praying […]

Our 28 students participated in a field trip to the private Bojo Beach…  The kids studied about salt water (and clean vs. contaminated water), fish, boats, shells and waves.  But it wasn’t until they changed into their suits (provided by Beth Brady, a Farmers’ Insurance Agent in Houston, TX) and ran through the sand that […]

Re-post of Help Wanted Ad to teach at Joy2theWorld International School in Ghana, West Africa

(First posted February, 2013 when Joy2theWorld International School was just a dream.) So many of us are very busy and wish we “just had the time” to make a difference “like THAT”. Some of us think that we don’t have enough money, enough spare time or enough courage to make a difference “like THAT!” But […]

This is what our students look like after 4 months in school!

  Meet Christian, Joachim, Wisdom, Patrick and David!  They are shining examples how 4 months can transform a child’s life.  They were playing soccer during break and stopped for a moment to pose for my camera…good friends, laughing and playing.  Their education is rigorous too.  They are learning about spelling, reading, counting (and a little […]


This is a story about making a difference.. being in a game worth playing.  It also includes some valuable information about Rotary and how you can get involved in your own communities.  Consider adding this to your 2014 Resolutions! Yes, it is January 1, 2014!  And what better way to start off the new year […]
