In Ghana, you'll find a unique richness everywhere you look, from the country's cultural history to its varied expanses of wilderness and coastline. Known for its exceptionally warm national character, Ghana, meaning "Warrior King," is a place where visitors are welcomed as friends. In the Volta Region, home to the Ewe people, you will become family.
The ever-growing population of the Volta Region has resulted in a notable strain on vital social resources. In recent years, many advances have been made to improve healthcare, hygiene, and education. However, malnutrition, disease, and the large economic divide between well-paid workers and low-paid workers have all posed significant obstacles to Ghana's progress. As a volunteer, you'll have an opportunity to effect real social change in a community dealing with all of the growing pains experienced by a region in flux.
