GHANA. . . THE LAND OF GOLD.
The country is an intensely colourful land on the West coast of Africa and renowned for the friendliness and warmth of its people. Ghana has great beaches, wild savannah, and dense rainforests. This English-speaking country provides volunteers with a wonderful introduction to Africa; it is politically stable, safe, affordable, and rewarding to visit.
Ghana is one of the countries in Africa that has a deep economic division between the wealthy and poor. Many Ghanaians live in poverty and cannot afford basic necessities for themselves or their families; particularly those living in the Northern part of Ghana. These communities are vulnerable to diseases, high infant and child mortality rate and poor education.
Despite this division, the country has progressed rapidly in recent years. We believe that our volunteers can hugely improve the quality of life for these communities and create positive change. By providing free healthcare, building up communities or improving literacy - together we can create brighter futures and help tackle poverty.
Joining a project with us at Volunteer Travel Projects will be an exciting, meaningful and unforgettable experience. Whether you’re on a gap year, career break or simply looking for some work experience while studying; our projects in Ghana are perfect for anyone interested in volunteering in the developing world.
