We are proud to launch our new GVI Business Internships Abroad!

Business Internships Abroad are a great way to apply your business management and leadership skills, explore the world, experience new cultures, contribute to a sustainable cause and kickstart your career!


Discover Ghana, an African country known for its coastal landscape of palm-lined beaches, and rivers surrounded by tropical forests. While you join our teaching, women's empowerment or community development programs, you also get a chance to explore the country's rich cultural heritage stretching far into the early medieval ages. Join us in supporting local communities and making a sustainable impact in Ghana's capital city, Accra.

Top Volunteer Projects in Ghana:

  • Short Term Community Development Internship In Ghana: GVI interns in Ghana will help us tackle issues related to education, healthcare, gender equality or construction projects.

As one of the first volunteers on this project, it was an incredibly exciting, fun and humbling experience.
I learnt a huge amount on how projects like these are set up and run.
Getting to work so closely with the local NGO, Action for Compassion in the beautiful Elmina Castle made me feel very grateful every day. The people from the AFC and the local area were so welcoming and kind and really made us feel apart of their lives and community through teaching us the local language and going out of their way to make sure we felt at home.
Getting to work closely with AFC meant we could integrate easier into the local communities and make contact with women who we were targeting for our sewing project. Getting to know these women and learn about their lives was very special. Along with these women, the guys from AFC and the other volunteers and staff from GVI, I have made some life long friends.
The area of Elmina was very beautiful but quiet making it the perfect base with the slightly larger town of Cape Coast very close by which was nice to spend the weekends or evenings.
This experience has been very humbling, has taught me an incredible amount and really was so much fun!

Yes, I recommend this program
