In 2015 Wessel was the first volunteer to come to work for the CO Foundation on the Youth Development Project in Kitase, Ghana. He worked for some months together with Lowie. Wessel had great contact with everyone and played an important role in further developing the role of volunteers in the organisation. Before and during his stay he worked hard and very successfully on raising awareness and funds for the project thus creating opportunities by himself. People are still asking about Wessel on a daily base.
