Linda coordinates the efforts between the countries, is the liaison with Ghanaian government officials (such as the Director of Education, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Social Welfare), hosts the volunteer teachers, and facilitates the sponsorship programme.
Born and raised in downtown Toronto, Linda graduated from Riverdale Collegiate and the University of Toronto. She retired after more than 25 years of teaching elementary school. The last nine years were spent teaching music in the Toronto District School Board, and it was during this time that Linda developed an interest in Ghanaian music.
