About this program

Volunteers will work with a locally organized group on different projects in numerous surrounding villages. Projects are in one of two areas: the first is Rural Communities and School Support related. These projects include the building of school blocks for kindergartners, instruction, or improvement of washrooms and facilities that the children use (often times current conditions are extremely unsanitary.) Volunteers might also help with the construction of wells or water systems, which can save lives in the dry season, or build libraries or internet training centers. The second project area is Orphanage Home Support Projects. These projects entail volunteers working to improve the facilities at a local orphanage. Efforts in Ghana have a great deal of support in the local communities, and volunteers will be cherished and appreciated as they help the people of Ho, and of Ghana, on projects that are important to them, and learn to see and experience their culture in a way that few rarely ever do. Projects vary depending on the number of volunteers, which projects were finished (or not) with the prior group, what priorities have changed, weather conditions, which supplies are available, and often the interest and fitness level of the volunteers. For these reasons, specific projects are often not fixed until the week prior to your arrival and can even change upon arrival.
