About Program

Although Ghana is an English-speaking country, many school children cannot communicate effectively in the English language especially in the “remote areas” and hinterlands. Also being surrounded by French speaking countries means we cannot neglect the French language. This common challenge rises in both the rural and urban areas of Ghana and there is a real need for volunteers to assist communities and towns with a shortage of teaching staff.

The Teaching project in Ghana seeks to stimulate the interest of school children in studying and speaking French and English, while simultaneously offering international volunteers the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the Ghanaian culture and education system. Volunteers are placed in both rural and urban areas in Ghana, where they assist one or the few local teachers. Volunteers on this program follow the syllabus of the Ghana Education Service, which is made available to volunteers during their orientation.

This program is no longer offered. View more programs from Heshbon's Foundation.

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.

An unforgettable experience in Ghana

Volunteer teacher for 5 months with Heshbon's Foundation, I was very well received and am delighted to share my experience today.
Seth and Naomi are very generous and very welcoming. Seth created his NGO to help the children of the village and has his heart on the hand.
The students are very interested in learning and cheerful. Volunteering has been very educational for me and rewarding!
On weekends, Seth offered me to discover Ghana through various visits: the capital Accra, Cape Coast, ...
I recommend Heshbon's Foundation without hesitation.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
