It’s not about the hours

Emma Obeng-Asante, CCI participant at NOVA-Alexandria 2016-2017 from Ghana, volunteered over 200 hours in the local community, 140 of which were dedicated to the Lincolnia Senior Center (and 75 more than was required by the program!). The impact of the volunteer work is often profound as illustrated by this beautiful digital story.
