Good times in Ghana

I chose this program because I was immediately taken by the personalized responses I received from the program director. I had contacted multiple organizations and felt like a little fish in a big pond. Also, most of the larger organizations I contacted were outside of Ghana and I really wanted a local program.

For 3 or 4 months before, I exchanged emails with the director. I had many many questions and Frank always responded within 48 hours and never made me feel like I was a hassle. He also developed the program to meet my very specific needs.

I did this program on my own accord, so I was not part of a school or work program. I wanted to challenge myself in a new country and help as well. I was concerned about traveling alone, since this was my first solo trip abroad. But I can honestly say, I never once felt unsafe the entire time I was in Ghana. Although, I was rarely alone.

I decided to volunteer in a rural area of Ghana, about 30 minutes outside of Kumasi. I'm glad I did, because Kumasi was a little bit more polluted so I had to have my inhaler handy a few times as I passed through. Onwe was a terrific little town and very friendly. I was placed at the Onwe Government Hospital. I arrived at a challenging time, the pharmacies were on strike, so there were less patients than usual. I rotated around the different wards and helped when I could. I specialize in dermatology, so I got to help with a lot of the dermatology cases. Overall, I didn't get to do as much as I wanted, but like I mentioned I came at a trying time.

I highly recommend doing the cultural immersion portion that is offered. Those were some of my favorite moments of my time here. I learned lots of Twi (local language spoken) and cultural traditions. It's definitely worth the extra money. I also signed up for the weekend tour to Cape Coast which was amazing.

Overall, I really enjoyed my time in Ghana. I'm glad I did the cultural immersion and weekend tour, I learned a lot about the country through those activities. I would've liked to have gotten more from my time at the hospital, but that wasn't really anyone's fault. The selling point of this program though is director Frank's individualized attention and sincere care to make a program that meets your needs as well as the local coordinators and Twi tutor that are part of the organization. The people really made this whole experience memorable. I definitely will return to Ghana and I highly recommend this program.

Heshbon's Foundation

It was such a great experience to spend our time here, doing something little, but good. I hope that me and my sister have done every of these children a little happier. Of course not everything here was amazing, but we understand it, cuz life here is absolutely different than our life in Russia. So, we're so excited about this program, we also will help these children in future, will try to send them different things that they need most and of course will try to come back in the future.

It was a great experience that gave us the understanding of different problems that the kids in Ghana meet. It was a pleasure to share this experience in our family. The kids are very kind and hardworking, they like to study despite the fact that they have no all opportunities for this. They don't have a lot things, but they always share everything with each other. Here we saw how the simple things can make kids happy.

Two wonderful weeks

I spent two wonderful weeks in Kumasi, Ghana. The food, the host family, the work - everything was excellent! You really get to see Ghana from within which is such a fantastic experience. Still, the security always felt very high.

Truly amazing

Traveling to a place like Ghana is such a unique amazing adventure to have so young in your life. Volunteering although tough is so rewarding, you get to experience the culture full on always. It was truly incredible I completely suggest to travel and volunteer in Ghana to anyone.
