    • I decided to forego Christmas shopping and send money for a party for children in Sankore, Ghana. The photographs and stories about the children moved me to continue to send financial support for tuition and school supplies for several children.

    • After many years of dreaming about travelling to Africa, I made my first trip and spent four weeks learning and sharing with in various communities in Ghana. I visited Uganda for the first time and by the end of my four week visit, sponsored six children.

    • I traveled to Ghana, Uganda, Togo, and Benin. The life-changing experiences and learning that I gained visiting these communities shifted my focus from charity to community building work. I registered Links Across Borders in 2009 to formalize this work and give others opportunities to participate.

    • Links Across Borders funded sustainability projects for orphaned children in Uganda. A group of college students and community members travels with Links to Ghana leaving every May to Reconnect, Reclaim and Remember in cultural immersion, learning tours, and community work.

    • On October 19, 2013 Women's Courage Awards presented Sylvia Morrison an award for Excellence in Education for her commitment to community development through education.
