About Program

Join Village Volunteers on a program in Ghana. Village Volunteers is committed to providing you with a safe and meaningful volunteer experience abroad. Your experience is geared to your interests, and is customized to the last detail, from your travel schedule and village destination to the projects with which you wish to be involved.

Those interested in participating in the Volunteer Program complete an application process, and upon acceptance, we work with you to find a perfect placement .

Our Volunteer Program is the result of collaborations between Village Volunteers and our in-country partner organizations. There are opportunities for all volunteers whether you are a passionate young adult or an experienced working professional. Projects include teaching in schools, assisting at an orphanage, working in public health clinics teaching or hands-on, helping with building and agricultural projects, or providing entrepreneurial training.

Village Volunteer

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.

Physical Therapy in Kpando

Village volunteers handled my logistics so I could provide physical therapy services to children at the community inclusive special school and Marquart Catholic hospital. Along with that I helped train a local to act as a PT once I left. VV placed me with a great host family. They handled all my meals and ensured I always had enough water for bucket showers and daily hygiene. The family became my 2nd family. Not only did I get to provide PT services and teach local community members, but I got to completely immerse myself in another culture. I learned what life is like in a developing countryby experiencing it firsthand. I attended a funeral, cooked with the women, did my wash by hand, shopped in the market, bucket showered, and experienced life without western luxuries. It wasn't easy, but it was one of the most fulfilling things I've ever done. I learned that it's about who we surround ourselves with and not the material things that truly make a person happy. I think I helped a few people too by helping them recover from illness and injury by providing PT.
