About Program

Counselling and Care for Humanity Centre (CCHC) as part of its social intervention has started a project with a theme ‘the development of Jukwa Abodo lies on the Children’s Education’ in Abodo a suburb of Jukwa in the Twifo Henmang Lower Denkyira District in Central Region of Ghana. This project is in collaboration with the Abodo Youth Organization, and the Traditional Rulers of the community.
Abodo Youth Organization is the few educated youth that have volunteered to help organize classes for the children in the community.
The traditional rulers are the custodians of the land of Abodo, and have agreed to provide land and assistance for the establishment of classrooms, computer laboratory (ICT centre), library, and children’s welfare centre.
Education transform lives and changes the face of a community. Every community development hangs on children’s education.
Knowledge is power, a driving force for successful life, and a life changer.

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.
