Unearth the World has partnered with a growing Ghanaian school and orphanage located in Ofaakor, a rural village near Kasoa and just 90 minutes from the capital of Accra.
In this project, volunteers will work alongside local people to care for, teach, and build relationships with volunteer staff and children.
The care tasks include bathing, clothing, feeding, and playing with children. Some volunteers may even wish to help out at the school, assist the cook in preparing meals, or contribute towards building/repair projects as needed.
This nonprofit organization was created by an inspiring and entrepreneurially minded Ghanaian woman. What began as an orphanage caring for 4 children has grown into an amazing organization housing over 120 children and providing education for the village youth.
Applicants must be hardworking, open-minded, and interested in service learning. They must also have an expertise in early childhood development or social work.
