Lisa Faye served in Ghana in 2004- Podcast # 130

Lisa Faye now lives in Saskatoon after many years. She studied at Memorial University, Newfoundland. She first found out about CUSO on the web and met Marian White who is the PE Officer in PEI.

She arrived in Accra and then served in Ho.

The organizations were Women's Initiative for Self Empowerment (WISE) and then Women in Law and Development Africa where she worked firstly on gender issues and then on statistics and advocacy work on domestic violence in Ghana.

She then came back to Canada and finished her Master's degree and went back again to Africa this time to Botswana with WUSC.

You can now find her working with OXFAM as a Policy and Outreach Officer in Saskatoon.

Thank you Lisa for your service and hospitality in Saskatoon. It was lovely meeting your wonderful daughter Leila.
