Degrassi In Ghana is set to premiere this Sunday at 7:30 ET on Much Music! The documentary special follows the cast of Degrassi during their trip to Ghana this past summer with Free The Children.
Once again, Jessica Tyler proves herself to be one of our favourite Degrassians by posting an album of pictures from Degrassi’s recent trip to Ghana on her Facebook page!
The album includes pictures of the cast at the airport, on the beach in Ghana, and even in Amsterdam presumably traveling to/from Ghana. She got some great pictures!
Remember that We Day is less than a month away now (!!). I’m sure we will hear even more about the Ghana trip as we get closer to the event. For more information (and also pictures from the Degrassi Ghana trip), check out the Me to We Facebook Page!
Several Degrassi cast members are arriving home in Toronto tonight after what looks like an exciting trip to Ghana!
The cast was in Ghana for their annual Free The Children trip. They were there to help build a school and interact with the community. In previous years, Degrassi cast members have traveled to Kenya, Ecuador, India, and Haiti. Each year there has been a half-hour documentary promoting Free the Children and documenting the cast’s adventures. While we have not heard about a Ghana documentary yet, I am hopeful that we will soon. And with the cast back in Toronto, we will likely be getting pictures from the trip over the next few days.
Degrassi has supported Free The Children for many years now. FTC founder Craig Kielburger even made a cameo appearance in season 7. For several years, Degrassi cast members have also appeared at FTC’s annual We Day event. They have not been officially announced for We Day this year yet, but I think it’s safe to say that we will probably see a few of them there. Check out our exclusive report from We Day in Toronto last year!
