About Program

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.

We are in urgent need for volunteers who can teach and assist in the French language, English, Mathematics, Science etc. Volunteers are also needed to help in administration and the running of the daily activities of the schools.

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.

Consider your impact: Volunteering abroad can be a rewarding experience for both volunteers and local communities, and at Go Overseas, we believe all volunteers should have the resources to make informed decisions about the type of volunteer project they want to partake in. However, despite best intentions, some organizations offering placements in orphanages may unknowingly place children in danger. You can read about the potential dangers of orphanage volunteering here. Learn more about how SFLIG Volunteers is promoting ethical volunteering.

An interesting experience

I spent five weeks at SFLIG volunteers.Sally, the director, is a wonderful and very supportive host with two lovely kids. Furthermore, I got a lot of support from Emmanuel, who would show me were I worked and help me with anything I needed. He is also a great guy to chat with. In the program, I worked two days per week at a Rehab primarily for drug addicts, of which some of the people where from ghettos. This was very fascinating as I also got the chance to go into the ghettos to give food and drinks. In general, I enjoyed the chance to talk with the people there and help them in the many ways needed. Apart from the Rehab, which I signed up for, I also did some maths and science teaching at an orphan school. In general, SFLIG were very open for me to work in various projects that I found interesting and where I thought I could help. The teaching itself was also a great experience as there were always some students who very much enjoyed the classes and asked me questions ranging over all sorts of topics. You can also find their projects on www.sfligvolunteers.org/volunteer-opportunities/

Kumasi Teaching

I had enriching experience in Kumasi teaching English. Playing with the children and forming lasting friendships. Being in Kumasi was a humbling experience that made me truly realize the simplistic joys in life such as running water, and other modern conviences. This made me ultimately realize that all children essential need love. I would not trade this experience for the world. You will have an amazing time.
