Since we first went to Accra, Ghana a few years ago, PeaceJam’s presence in the city has grown tremendously. The kids there have really embraced the program; more than 500 students will come to our PeaceJam conference this year — it’s incredibly inspiring to see the response.

So I’m extremely excited that we’ll be returning to Accra next week for the annual conference — it’s my third time going. During every visit, I enjoy seeing how the organization has grown and what the kids have been up to in the meantime. We’ve captured some of the culture in our posts and videos; highlights are below.

I know there are a lot of TPG readers who live in and around Accra — because I’ve met a few of you on each of my trips. If you live in Ghana and want to check out what PeaceJam is all about or if you own a business and would like to get involved with the cause, reach out to our Marketing and Events Manager, Becca Denenberg at becca@thepointsguy.com.

And for those of you not in Ghana, be sure to follow along with next week’s trip on Instagram and Snapchat.
