Throughout our time in Ghana, Nikki and TK have shown us the realities of their communities and country, whether hopeful or challenging. They have shown us their work in the streets with children and youth, they’ve shown us their work in the village of Lolito, and the work they do mentoring university students. Through their time leading us here it has become apparent to me that commitment and consistency are what change and transform people as well as communities.
In Nikki and TK’s work, this commitment and consistency come out of a deep love they have for the people they work with. Each child they interact with on the streets or in Lolito, each university student they invest in, they acknowledge the importance and value of each one of them and make it a point for them to know that they are loved and that they too can make a difference in their own community.
