Stef Renée: Ghana Odyssey

Written by on January 27, 2017

WURD family, our own Stef Renée has spent the last week in Ghana as part of a tour arranged by the Israeli Consulate General, who invited members of the media to document the work they’re doing there. Many don’t know that Ghana and Israel have worked on projects together for decades; in fact, Ghana has an embassy in Ramat Gan, Israeland Israel has an embassy in Ghana.

Stef will bring everyone up to speed on her amazing adventure during next week’s MOJO, but in the meantime, please enjoy her recent photos and vlog of the journey below:


I learned my lesson about Facebook Live on my last trip. Only trying that when I know I’ve got excellent signal. Otherwise, you get the slightly delayed video updates. Let’s roll to West Africa!

The time has arrived. My first taste of official Jollof rice in Ghana. The smack talking between us Nigerians and the Ghanaians thus far has been legendary.


Last full day in Ghana. More nonprofits and NGOs to visit.
