Avi's Return to Ghana

In 2014, Avi Duckor-Jones spent 9 months on the isolated coast of Cape Three Points in Western Ghana, he now returns to give back to the communities who gave him so much.

During his time in Ghana, Avi directed Trinity Yard School, a Vermont based NGO, aimed at supporting students from the nearby rural villages of Akwidaa and Cape Three Points. 

The heat, the isolation, the danger, being stripped of all comforts, and the loneliness, made it one of the most challenging chapters of his life. 

Avi's students made it the most rewarding. 

Upon leaving, he continued to think of his students every single day, and thanks to winning Survivor New Zealand, was able to return and give back to the communities who gave me so much.

“Return to Ghana” is the story of Avi's journey back to West Africa. The idea was simple: to find each one of his 19 students, hear their stories, and see how to best support them. What transpired was an epic journey through jungles, cities, towns, and villages seeking to find each one.
