African Adventures works in a rural, deprived area of Ghana where there are limited prospects for children, with the main industries being fishing and agriculture. African Adventures works with a local non-governmental organisation, The Young Shall Grow International (TYSGI), which is focused on the provision of opportunity for children through education.
TYSGI was started by Siva Vordzorgbe, who was made homeless at a young age and started working at the age of 11 so that he could afford to attend school at 13 years old. Siva wants to provide children with the opportunities that he didn't have so he partnered with African Adventures in 2013 to help realise his dream.
African Adventures and TYSGI support with the development of a number of local schools, providing financial and humanitarian assistance. Volunteers can support by carrying out a teaching support role, a sports coaching role or a construction role. A fantastic adventure weekend shows you Ghana's beauty and culture.
