Most of the government schools in Ghana lack quality and adequate teachers. Volunteers come in to help in most of the reading and art subjects, based on their ability. One doesn't need to be a professional teacher since you have the flexibility to choose the age group you want to help, from the very young to high school. You also work with a local teacher until you get familiar with the school system. A willingness to share and be proactive is also very important.
Placement starts at 8am and closes at 4pm Monday to Friday. Volunteers have weekends for themselves to explore Ghana. There are after school programs where kids show volunteers interesting things in their community and homes.
- Program fees include airport pick-up, orientation, accommodation, meals and 24/7 in-country support
- Program runs all year long and on any day
- Weekend tour attractions to any part of Ghana, a lush & lively country
- Community support
At SFLIG we aim to provide education for some of the most vulnerable in our society – particularly girls and young mothers – so that they may become leaders of change for future generations.
Whilst education is ‘free’ in Ghana there are still expenses incurred to provide for the students – uniforms, school lunches, textbooks, supplies, registration fees and transportation. Culturally, when presented with the expenses of educating a child, the decision to choose between a son’s education and a daughter’s, most families will invest in their son. Getting volunteers to participate in our programs helps us to support girls' education and empower them to live their full potential.
The above mentioned social issue is the reason why you should volunteer with us if you want to see the impact you are making with your money, time, love and of course the faith you place in us in traveling to an unknown land. We don't also just place you in a project, we work with you at your placement location.
