Our Ghanaian Orphanage volunteer program seeks to address the numerous problems that many orphaned children without proper education, health care, food, love and attention face as a result of the death and insanity of their parents. Orphans everywhere need care and love; you will be placed in a rural environment where you will teach, love and care for these less fortunate children. You will help design and execute effective teaching programs, activities and events to inspire and develop the children’s talent and abilities through human interaction and care. This program will also give you an opportunity to explore and understand the Ghanaian people and their culture through the eyes of the people you are helping.

As a orphanage volunteer working with children in the shelter, you will be helping the kids to learn life-skills that parents would normally teach by getting involved in the day-to-day running of an orphanage - making sure the children are fed, washed and dressed, teaching the younger children, playing games with them and paying them personal attention - you will be making a really positive impact in their lives.

Whether you are helping older children with school homework, or playing a game with the younger ones, you will be an important part in their development. Any extra interests or skills that you have can be put to good use, so please let our local staff know about them when you apply.

Voluntary  orphanage work in Ghana is an ideal way to get involved and help improve the welfare of the children. You can contribute toward this important development work during a gap year or career break, or as a worthwhile way to spend a vacation. Energy, passion, and commitment to the work at hand are all that you need. We have various different volunteer options for you in Ghana, working in both orphanages and care centers.

Please note that your safety is very important to us. We will provide the support and guidance you need to carry out your work. You are also welcome to talk to our coordinators in your home countries.

Typical day

A program/timetable for your stay will be designed by the program coordinator, and you will have the chance to contribute to this program to ensure that you make the best use of your time in Ghana. Depending on what you will be doing, your days will start at 8am and will end at 5pm. You will also have free time for personal explorations and to plan any projects that you would like to implement in the community.

Free-time activities
