The program

VolunteerMatch Ghana is seriously in need of volunteers to come and offer teaching assistance among Street children schools in Ghana. Offer free basic education and doing other related activities for the children. This PCN volunteer placement is well organize in order to create new life into these unfortunate and neglected children by sharing fun, love and education to them. Many children along the coastal belt and discovered villages cannot afford to go to school. 

Why it is important

This means that these areas suffer greatly from illiteracy and its associate problems, this is why PCN has established a Street Children Schools in most of the communities in Ghana to help provide free basic education for these children, funding their education into Government schools, and provide them with all the skills they will need to live self-sufficiently.

The children you will be working with

 We have in our care about 250 street-children and orphans. These children are Ghanaian and Liberian children, some with single parent and others have none. The street children schools are constantly in need of volunteers to work alongside local volunteer teachers with children from kindergarten to Junior high school. They are taught in basic subjects such as Mathematics, English or French and organizing recreational activities and going on excursions with the children to the nearby historical sight-seeing.

Tagesablauf

A normal working day will be from 7:00 AM to 12:00 PM where volunteers are needed to create a welcoming and friendly environment for all the children by:

  • Teaching lessons (English, maths, science, etc)
  • Show them hygiene by teaching them how to brush their teeth
  • Help the children eat healthy, balanced meals
  • Help children with their homework
  • Provide enriching activities to improve the lives of these children
  • Involve the children engaging activities like games, sports, music and dancing
  • Help the orphanage or care centre with daily chores
  • Help make the children's beds
  • Help change clothes, especially for younger children
  • Walk the children to school each day

Freizeitaktivitäten

Accra has developed a fairly western social scene in the recent years, mainly because of the large expatriate community in the city. On Friday night, singing karaoke in the champs sports bar at the Paloma Hotel, you would be forgiven for thinking you’d stepped back into Europe. And this has its place-after a month living in the village, a cocktail and some fluent English conversation can be just what you need. 

There are some great deal of bars in Accra with much more feel, and much more opportunity to interact with Ghanaians, one popular place with volunteers is ’By well’ at the southern end of Osu Oxford street, where the house band plays every Thursday evening. Cape coast also has good bars, ‘Oasis’ on the beach near the Castle is popular and sometimes has impressive live drumming and dancing shows. 

Spot bars are usually relatively inexpensive, and the sorts of places local people to for their beer after work. Learning some Twi or Ewe and some Ga from the locals as the sun goes down and sip an ice-cold star or club beer can be a great and very cheap evening out. Labadi beach is also a place where volunteers go swimming and horse riding.

Ghana being a safari destination for tourists, our program has established links to various destinations for our volunteers. Volunteers have the opportunity to visit the famous Kakum canopy walk, Tafi Atome monkey sanctuary, Wli water falls, Cape Coast castle and the Mole national park.
