About the Program

The two recognized human rights organizations where we place volunteers/interns are The Human Rights Advocacy Center (HRAC) and Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative (CHRI).

The situation of human rights in Africa and for that matter Ghana is generally reported to be poor, and it is seen as an area of grave concern according to the UN, and non-governmental observers. While many countries have laws and regulations recognizing basic human rights for all citizens, these are not always recognized. Extensive human rights abuses still occur in several parts of Africa, often under the oversight of the state.

The Human Rights Advocacy Center (HRAC) organization's in Ghana is dedicated to the promotion and protection of human rights. Their areas of activities include: Rule of Law, Access to Justice, Respect of the Constitution, Police Accountability, Children's Rights, Women's Rights and Right to Information. Through cutting-edge research, education, and advocacy, the organization saves lives, fights injustice, restores peace, and builds the human rights movement around the world. The organization deals with issues of reproductive rights (harmful traditional practices such as female genital circumcision), issues of rape, child trafficking, assault, unlawful detention and eviction, etc.

Location
Ghana is a peaceful and welcoming country; Ghana satisfies one's appetite for both modern and traditional life. Its wide valleys, low-lying coastal plains, and thick rainforests resound with the beat of traditional rituals, while her cities glow and vibrate with all the bustle of the modern world. The Ghanaians are the friendliest people in West Africa: warm, proud yet humble with a contagious and calming sense of funniness.

Ghana is hot. It is always hot. What’s more, it's always humid. Humidity usually lingers between 95 and 100 percent. The rainy season lasts from mid-June to mid-November - sometimes. The rain provides a little respite from the intense heat, but temperatures will still be in the mid-80s Fahrenheit. The south of the country experiences the heaviest rainfall during September.

Día típico

You’ll start each day with breakfast with your host family. Get dressed in semi-formal, conservative clothing before heading off in a tro-tro or shared taxi. On your first day, your supervisor will accompany you to ensure you know your way around.

Your day will start at 8am and you’ll finish up at 4pm, Monday to Friday. However, your hours may be longer if you’re doing outreach work. You’ll get an hour each day for lunch.

On an average day, you’ll arrive at the office and meet up with your supervisors before heading to a community outreach. At the outreach, you’ll interview community members, collect data, and raise awareness through educational talks. After returning to the office around midday, you’ll review the information you collected. Once you have analyzed the information, you and the human rights staff will be better able to assist and advise community members.

In the afternoons, you can use you time to conduct independent research for current initiatives. You can also plan presentations for educational campaigns, attend meetings, or assist with project planning for future outreaches.

Once you are done for the day, you can spend time getting to know your host family. Over the weekends, you can explore the beautiful countryside and learn about the slave trade at one of the many national museums. You’ll also have the chance to visit Cape Coast and walk through the old fishing town or relax on the beach.

Our Medical and Healthcare internships are much admired amongst the medical students, and this is where medics get hands-on knowledge into complex medical procedures. Be it for college credits or an internship or volunteer certificate or even a service learning trip - schoolies, gapers and numerous high school students enroll for our programs throughout the year.

First, if you are going with this organization to Ghana, do not rely on the photos. There are at least 15 destinations in Ghana if you are leaving with this organization so pay attention to the comment, inform yourself about the destination before. On the other hand, I imagine that all destinations ...
