You will have the opportunity to work alongside local Ghanaians to assist in local farming programs. The benefits of volunteering extend to you - the volunteer, and to the community and project where you serve. Personal benefits include development of life skills, personal growth, friendship, increased self confidence, social awareness, and building independence. An international volunteer experience will also enhance career prospects.
When you volunteer with GVN, you can be assured you are helping a local grassroots organisation. Volunteer efforts directly benefit local groups, local communities, and local people. We work with our partner organizations to support them in achieving their goals and ensuring that their projects are sustainable and effective.
What to Expect?
The land belongs to the children's home and is used to grow food for the children and generate income to support the running of the children’s home; excess produce is to be sold locally. Duties will include weeding, planting, watering and harvesting.
This is not a full time project; you will have plenty of time to spend with the children in the orphanage. This role it suitable for volunteers with experience in growing crops or gardening, and for those with green fingers and a readiness to get involved.
Please note that activities will vary according to season and need at the time of your placement.
