  • Provide care, love and attention to children
  • Providing daily care to the children such as preparing meals and watching over them

How You Can Make a Difference

 Due to this project, orphanages are able to stay afloat and provide the children with the necessities. Besides lightening the load of the staff, your participation as a volunteer in Ghana will be helping the orphanage to be financially viable. You'll also be the shining light for the children and bring about a fresh and positive energy in the orphanage. You'll also play the role of a friend and mentor to the children, turning them into confident individuals capable of believing in themselves. The love and attention that these children get from volunteers will uplift their spirits and put a smile on their faces.

 


Free-time activities
