Akwaaba Africa ! Volunteering in Ghana-Tamale

I was for six weeks in Ghana-Tamale. It was one of the best decisions I have made! I worked as a Volunteer in an orphanage. I had a class with 10 kids from 8-14. I really enjoyed teaching the children. We had so much fun together. I really loved every moment.

Our Coordinator Fred was very nice and helped us always. He didn’t give us the feeling of being just Volunteers, he gave us the feeling of being a family. I felt very safe in Ghana, because everyone is very friendly. It was great to try some Ghanaian food.

I had so many Highlights during the six weeks; the children in the orphanage, the trips on the weekends and the Ghanaian culture. We visited the Mole National park, where we saw so many and interesting animals of Africa, like elephants. We also went to the monkey village, the Kintampo Waterfall and to a slave camp. Actually the whole trip to Ghana was a highlight. It was also great getting to know all the other volunteers.

I would surely recommend this program to anyone. It’s a great way to volunteer in Africa and you won't regret it. It was the best experience of my life!
