Testimonial 2: Faculty- Led Group Leader

The following correspondence was written by Dr. John Pfautz, of Augustana College, to the Chair of the Aya Centre, Dr. Michael Williams, and one of its Programme Officers, Mr. Sena Gadzekpo. It is in reference to a Winter Session, Service Learning Program the Aya Centre organized for a group of students from Augustana College.

Hi Michael and Sena:


Please also forward this to George.


I want to send my heartfelt thanks for all that you do for us.  Your preparation and execution of the program was done very well.  Thanks very much for your efficiency, as well as the high quality of programming that you provided for us.  Todd and I are very pleased that we were able to provide this pilot program of immersion which could not have been possible without your careful assistance.  Thank you for handling the headaches with the homestays and internships.  Those problems were few, but needed changes to happen fast, and you guys responded quickly and efficiently.  Sena was invaluable when we were out of Accra able to negotiate and deflect the stressful negotiations away from us.  The students warmed to him a great deal and wholeheartedly embraced him as part of the group.


The Aya Centre is in good hands and provides an important service.  Thanks for all you do.  We hope to put another group of students into your hands during the Spring of 2015.

Please express our gratitude to Nii and Martin, as well as Timothy and the others at Aya Centre.


Thanks again.

John Pfautz
