Volunteers are needed to support a passionate team and help build a brighter future for rural West African villages. This is a fantastic opportunity for volunteers to get involved in a diverse range of community initiatives from eco solar lights to sports! Volunteers can help support the following projects:
Volunteers are not required to have professional qualifications, just a positive attitude and lots of enthusiasm! It's a relaxed team volunteering environment and you have the flexibility to get involved with other volunteer roles - such as building, early learning, and photography - within the village.
If you have specialist skills, the team can create a bespoke volunteering placement for you to maximise your impact. This includes builders, carpenters, mechanics, electricians, doctors, nurses, healthcare professionals, teachers, management and marketing specialists. Just get in touch to find out more.
The Community Development project helps provide better access to education with eco-friendly, safe alternatives such as cycling and solar lights, minimising environmental impact. Education and Sports Coaching initiatives promote a culture of good health and hygiene, improving wellbeing of the communities. Construction projects build rainwater harvesting systems, boosting access to clean water and “Tech to Teach” engages young people in creative ways of learning.
Volunteers provide additional support to the team, helping to facilitate sessions in community healthcare education and children's afterschool IT clubs which wouldn’t be possible due to the community's limited resources. They are able to assist in monitoring and evaluating the eco solar light and cycling projects which help provide better access to education.
Although English is the national language of Ghana, the level of English in this area is low since many children speak local tribal languages. All Primary and Secondary school subjects in Ghana are taught in English, so a good understanding of the language is vital for furthering their education. By engaging with the children and community members in English volunteers are directly improving education and employment prospects of the school children and members of the community.
