Volunteer Abroad Opportunities in Ghana
Try volunteering in remarkable Ghana in West Africa and discover why Ghana is famous for being one of the safest and most hospitable countries in Africa.
Ghana has exceptional beaches, wild savannah, and a lot of rain forests. We believe Ghana should be the first destination for anyone interested in volunteering in Africa. We have several projects that are great trips for a career break, internship, summer break, gap year or volunteer vacation.
The majority of our volunteer projects in Ghana are based in Koforiodua, the laid back and easy going capital of the eastern region.

I also learnt customs I was never taught at home such as praying at assembly and before meals, etc.
Their culture was something that made me think as it was very different from mine but nonetheless important.I think volunteering with all such generous and non-prejudice people has made me open my mind and reaffirm the saying "Money can help towards happiness but does not guarantee it 100%".

Teaching in the orphanage was intense, and often quite difficult.
There is no curriculum to follow, you are very much left to figure out what you will teach on your own. But after the first day I was able to get to know my class, and figure out the level they were at, and had some basic activities and lessons worked out for the next day.
