Volunteer and Intern Abroad in Ghana

Location

Ghana: Kumasi, Rural Areas, Tamale

Description

We offer affordable volunteer and intern abroad programs in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. The programs are customized for you with flexible work schedule and start date. Affordable program fees start from only USD 180 (accommodation, meals, and 24/7 local support included). Our programs are designed to help local communities while at the same time providing valuable learning and cultural experience.

Ghana is truly a multi-cultural country. As a volunteer you should strive to examine, listen and learn the culture of your host country. Thus, you should always linger vigilant and non-judgemental.

Ghanaians are welcoming in nature and among the world's friendliest people. Currently, urbanisation and westernization are breaking down many ancients' beliefs and practices; on the other hand, Ghanaians are still maintaining their traditional African culture with great pride from ancient times to the present.
