What to Expect

Help Ghana- Ghana's education is still in its developmental stage due to inadequate funding that has drastically affected the quality in teaching and facilities necessary for a better education.  Take this vital opportunity to impact your knowledge in helping teach subjects like Maths, English, Science, History and foreign languages in schools in Accra.

Your Role- Offer inspiring and exciting lessons that will improve literacy, numeracy, and communication skills. Help with lesson planning and more! You will be encouraged to introduce your own ideas and get involved with extra-curricular activities which might include art and design, drama, music, sport or the production of a school newspaper. Above all, we want to give you the flexibility to decide how you can best contribute to the school environment and education in Ghana.

Community Projects – We run a variety of community projects in Ghana, including sports coaching, care work and working in underprivileged children's centres. You are welcome to build volunteering at these projects into your itinerary and we would welcome the support during your stay.  Make your experience in Ghana as meaningful as possible!

Why I Chose Ghana

"I had the most amazing time when I was in Ghana! From working in the local orphanage to coaching local football teams I could have not asked for more.  As well as this the structured weekend trips allowed me to visit the 'real' Ghana. So in all it was a well rounded trip with brilliant support from the London office coupled with superb volunteer coordinators made it a trip to remember"
