This project focuses on the construction and renovation of orphanages, clinics, community centers, toilet facilities and schools. Volunteers also have the opportunity to meet chiefs and community elders, and learn about the various cultures of the different communities through music and dance. Volunteers work closely with the local people and OGVO Ghana staff on tasks which include painting, brick laying, plastering, digging, block shaping, carpentry, steel bending, mortar mixing, etc. If you’re a keen outdoors person with a good level of fitness, this will be a perfect project for you. The Construction and Renovation project offers volunteers the special opportunity to work alongside local people to help improve the infrastructure in small, rural communities. Please note, this project has an additional fee of US$40 per week for construction and renovation materials that are used during the project. Please note, projects and volunteer roles will vary from community to community.
