Ghanaians are extremely passionate about football and their love for the game is evident everywhere. Volunteering Solutions places volunteers in this program in local schools and football clubs in the Tamale region in Northern Ghana. The people of Tamale love the game of football, especially since the city has got a brand new football stadium.

Volunteer's role is to assist the local coaches in their daily practice schedule with the local players. Volunteers can also help the students in local schools to improve their game and organize football matches.

During your time as a volunteer, you can help in the development of the football skills of young players. Volunteers working in the Football Coaching Volunteer project are also welcome to work in the Community Development or Orphanage Program wherein you can combine two programs.

In case of space is not available in the volunteer home, you will be accommodated with a Ghanaian Host family. Accommodation is either provided in an individual or shared room along with other volunteers. By staying with a family you will experience the local Ghanaian culture, language customs, and traditions. There are separate rooms for male and female volunteers with shared toilet facilities. Participants should note that living is of a basic standard and you should not expect luxuries. Power cuts are common in Ghana and most rural houses do not have running water during times of drought.
