Dear Reader,This past summer, we had the privilege of traveling toGhana with a group of close friends. The purpose of ourtrip was to visit and commission two wells for projectWell Done, a clean water effort we helped launch andsupport from 2007 and into 2008. From the monthsspent working on the project implementation to actuallytraveling to the villages to visit the completed wells, thejourney has quite simply been an incredible one. Alongthe way, we’ve learned the complexities of implement-ing a clean water project in a remote region of a devel-oping country, observed the plight of those living in
poverty in rural Ghana, and perhaps most signicantly,
received inspiration from the countless individuals whoare tirelessly working on the front lines to combat theseissues of poverty and sickness in a diversity of roles andcapacities. We thank you for taking the time to readthrough this trip report, and it is our hope that throughthese pages, you too will learn, observe, and receive
inspiration. While the words and images that ll this
report ultimately cannot do our experiences justice, wehope that they may provide you with a glimpse into ourjourney – all the sights we encountered, the lessons welearned, and the amazing individuals we met that haveradically impacted our lives and challenged us to action.With Warm Regards,Jim Yoon Joshua To
