Nearly one dozen members of the South Suburban Chapter of Jack & Jill of America, all of whom are juniors and seniors who attend high school in the south suburbs, recently toured the Republic of Ghana in West Africa to learn firsthand about the social and economic disparities of one of the most visited countries in the world.

Noah White, Seth Adams, Dylan Harris, Nia Long, Niles Porter, Aisha Dillard, Deja Rollins, Chelsea Tayui, Morgan Alston, Cydney Richardson and Hope Ihaza participated in the trip.

Officials said the life-altering, seven-day tour included the Osu Children’s orphanage, which houses several dozen children displaced or abandoned due to AIDS; the Elmina Slave Castle; and the Kwame Nkruman Mausoleum.
