Childcare volunteers in Ghana work in both rural and urban communities, providing education, care and attention to children from low-income families. This program is well suited to volunteers with a warm and caring nature, who love working with children and are passionate about supporting early childhood development. Tasks include helping children with morning and evening routines, assisting with food preparation and providing care and entertainment.
Are you passionate about sustainability and looking for some hands-on volunteer work? As an Agriculture Volunteer in Ghana, you’ll be based on a local farm 2-3 hours from Accra. Tasks involve clearing and developing land for crops, fertilizing, planting, nurturing, teaching farming techniques to locals, fencing, and assisting with purchasing, moving and caring for stock.
Based in rural Ghana, this Construction & Renovation project offers volunteers the special opportunity to work alongside local people to help improve infrastructure in small rural communities. Projects focus on clinics, community centers, toilets facilities and schools. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to meet chiefs and community elders, and learn about the local culture through music and dance.
As a Medical Volunteer in Ghana, you’ll help support small clinics in under-resourced, rural areas for two days per week, and then mobile wound care outreach for the remaining three days. You’ll play a pivotal role in providing basic healthcare services to communities who often don’t have access to these resources. This project is open to qualified medical or nursing professionals as well as volunteers who have completed at least two years of medical or nursing training.
Are you an energetic, enthusiastic individual? Ready to give back to a local community in need of extra support and resources? As a Sports Teaching Volunteer, you’ll put structure around local sporting programs that help children develop their physical capabilities outside of school. This program is well suited to individuals with a love of sport and real enthusiasm for supporting youth development and working with young people.
