Each Summer Louisville students have the opportunity to travel to Tamale, Ghana for a life changing experience.
Interns spend six weeks in Tamale: living, working, eating and breathing Ghanaian culture and hospitality.
In 2006 Sister Cities of Louisville and its Ghanaian partner, Sister Cities of Tamale created a summer internship program for university level students.
