In the summer of 2011, five students from Princeton University’s Engineers Without Borders (EWB) chapter spent two months in Ashaiman, Ghana, to finish the construction of a community library. This video chronicles the trip, which was the culmination of a three-year project to provide the area with improved education and digital resources.
