The Senase Project
It all began when seven college students traveled deep into the heart of Ghana during their Semester at Sea voyage. When they made the journey to the farming village of Akatim, they found a group of students trying to study in a small huddling of shacks in need of more than help…they found a group of students in need of hope. Thus, it was in that school that The Senase Project was born. See our documentary by clicking play on the video to the left and hear Desmond Tutu speak on education in Ghana and The Senase Project.
