Why I Chose Ghana

"I definitely had the trip of a lifetime in Ghana and found it to be a great place to go for my first travelling experience as it is such a friendly, welcoming country.  The coordinators in Ghana were excellent, providing you with all the information you needed for your stay and where the first point of contact for any queries with placements. Placements were arranged really well and if you had any troubles they were responded to quickly. There are opportunities to visit schools and give lessons to children alongside your placement.  There are also many things to do in your free time such as going to craft markets, the beach/pool, and going out to bars/clubs/restaurants in the evening.  The coordinators are really great at organising group trips, for example a trip to the waterfalls, monkey sanctuary, canopy walks at Cape Coast & Big Milly's- a beach party resort.  These weekend trips gave us a chance to experience more of Ghana!  This experience is a great opportunity to meet new people from all different areas, and doing many different placements, and allows you to build really strong friendships, even in a short time span. I would definitely recommend this trip,  I didn't want to leave!"
