Description


Volunteering abroad is the opportunity of a lifetime, and our flexible short-term programs let you design your ideal experience in Ghana. Volunteer from 1 week to 3 months in meaningful projects that will let you work side-by-side with local people and experience the Ghanaian culture like never before. As an international volunteer with 'goGhana', you're making a positive contribution, by sharing in the goals of a Ghanaian community that warmly welcomes you. You'll gain new perspectives and insight into the culture and yourself. It's an exciting and personally inspiring experience, and you'll develop memories that will stay with you forever. As a volunteer in Ghana, you will gain unparalleled access to a country that is rich with the traditions of West African culture. Ghana was the first African country to gain independence, and while the official language of Ghana is English, more than 70 different languages are spoken. The clan and tribal systems are part of the culture in Ghana, and many traditional chiefs operate on a parallel system with the freely elected governmental body, the District Assembly. Ghana's landscape is diverse - it has low bush lands and grassy plains in the north, rich tropical rainforests in the central belt, and plains and scrub surround a sandy coastline. Volunteers in Ghana are involved with caring for infants and children, teaching children, teaching English, assisting teachers, working towards women's empowerment, sharing their professional skills/experience, observing and assisting local health professionals, and assisting teachers of special education. goGhana is a recognized leader in the field of international volunteering, with more than 1,500 volunteers each year. Founded in 2004, we are an international not-for-profit organization with no political or religious affiliations. 'goGhana' also has a branch in the republic of Togo and in the United states of America with the head quarters in MA
