Definitely leaving a piece of my heart here. Thank you @plancanada for inviting me and thank you #Ghana for so generously sharing your smiles, your stories, your singing and dancing, and your epic beauty.

Rebecca is the mother of three, grandmother to four and Godmother to hundreds of kids in over 20 communities in Ghana. She has been working within the communities for 15 plus years.
She is transforming gender norms; empowering women and girls; protecting children's rights; establishing mothers and fathers support groups; creating female run village savings and loans; and mobilizing health volunteers to support pregnant women and babies who are most at risk. She does this on a daily basis... It's been such a pleasure to be in her orbit in #Ghana . @plancanada #changethebirthstory

Too bad we're having no fun. #Ghana @plancanada photo cred: @jmacdo01

I'll never forget witnessing Rebecca, a community leader with @PlanCanada, empower this amazing group of teenagers in a discussion about their current challenges, their path to a brighter future and their beautiful dreams. Such a joy to meet this spirited group of future journalists, doctors, teachers, pilots and one lovely actress in the very front row. #Ghana

Nurse Cynthia, who was trained by @plancanada, provides care for Patricia and her baby, Goodluck, in a remote community that otherwise wouldn't have access to medical care. When she's not in this clinic, she is making home visits to educate people about family planning. She's #changingthebirthstory . #Ghana

Yesterday as we drove north from Accra, my new friend Israel told me that I would marvel. Cue some serious non stop marveling . #Ghana

Just had an inspiring meeting with this amazing group of community health volunteers. Hero, and his fellow passengers, in addition to their day jobs, dedicate their time to monitoring children and pregnant women in their communities. They are working to put an end to maternal and infant mortality. #changethbirthstory @plancanada

Thrilled to meet Nurse #Amelia , who works educating adolescence girls about delaying pregnancy and staying in school, all while providing care for young mothers throughout pregnancy and childbirth. She is working tirelessly to #changethebirthstory . #genderequalitystartswithus . @plancanada
