Review Description

What we do?

We take the needs of the community, led by community members, to create programs that fill the gaps needed in Orphanages, Hospitals, Schools, and Social Welfare offices in the Cape Coast region. We allow our volunteers to bring their knowledge and skills to begin to assist community leads in each project, from there, the volunteer's own skillset is expanded through cultural exchange. The injection of new knowledge and passion allows for the community leads and volunteers to work together to ensure a sustainable project that provides benefits a lot longer than a single volunteer stay.

Where we work?

We work in the Cape Coast Region of Ghana. Ghana, and especially Cape Coast is extremely safe and welcoming to foreigners. Ghanian culture is extremely welcoming to guests. We are also blessed to be based in one of the most picturesque regions of Ghana, directly on the Gulf of Guinea. Bursting with History, Cape Coast also home to the Cape Coast Castle and other historic monuments central to the story of Ghana.

Some vaccines are required, we suggest a consultation with a travel doctor pre-departure.

Our Vision

Our Vision is to be guided and led by local needs and leaders in order to create a happier, superior Cape Coast Region, improving the community how those who live in the community see fit.

Our Goals

Our goals are constantly changing as we are inspired by those in our community and our volunteers spending time in our programs. The grass-roots nature of all of our programs makes the individual of the goals to the program. The overarching goal is clear, to lift those in our community desiring to make change up using the skills and abilities of our volunteers for sustainable change. The goal of our orphanage program is to make the daily lives of orphans in our community smoother so they can learn, play and develop. At the hospital, we have the goal of improving our local health care system through injecting knowledge and passion into existing gaps. In our schools, we have the goal of giving teachers a boost to improve their ability to educate our youth.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for passionate people who want to make a difference and know that their difference is sustainable and what the community actually needs. Volunteers who are looking to develop their skills through a process of cultural exchange, while bringing their own specialized skill set to the table.

Why Us? 

We not only provide our volunteers with a stressfree experience by ensuring our volunteers have a safe place to stay at our lodging house, as well have the meals and transport that they need. We also provide the unique opportunity to live and travel culturally like a Ghanian with our experienced travel guides on staff to guide volunteers every step of the way. We also ensure that our programs are lead by those who benefit from them and will continue to drive positive results, the community.

Interesting experience but would recommend checking out other organizations. I met many other volunteers and „volunteer with Ghana“ is offering less for a mid-Range price, especially concerning the accommodation. It’s a run down colonial building, next to the biggest road in cape coast and ...
